Interstitial pregnancy is a rare entity that accounts for nearly 2% of ectopic pregnancies. His diagnosis is almost always based on laparoscopy. The risk of rupture with significant hemorrhage remains high. The treatment is classically surgical by corneal resection, medical treatment is increasingly used. Through an observation of an interstitial pregnancy diagnosed in our department and treated initially medically and then by radical surgery and by means of a review of the literature, we will try to explain the different diagnostic and therapeutic methods used in interstitial pregnancies, we will also learn the importance of patient selection in order to avoid risky changes, especially in the absence of consensus.
