Abstract

In the last years, ectopic pregnancy has become a frequent problem, especially in the industrialized countries. Women aged 30-40 years are mostly affected. Infact, in this ten-years period, more and more women feel the desire of pregnancy at ripe age, first of all because of their job. This study shows 136 cases of extrauterine pregnancy, observed at our hospital, I and II Institute of Obstetric and Gynecological Clinic of "Policlinico Umberto I" in Rome from January 1997 to December 1999. The object of this analysis is to determine the characteristics and ethiologic factors of this pathology.
