INTRA-ABDOMINAL PREGNANCY

INTRA-ABDOMINAL PREGNANCY History. —Mrs. E. A., aged 25, born in Indiana of French and German descent, was admitted to the obstetric service of the City Hospital, Aug. 10, 1920, because of a severe pain in the abdomen. Although of slender build and not very robust, her health had always been moderately good. She had begun to menstruate when 14 years old; and, until her present pregnancy, menstruation had always been regular and normal. She had never suffered from leukorrhea nor had a miscarriage. She was married, Aug. 28, 1919, and on Nov. 8, 1919, menstruated for the last time. Since then there had been a progressive enlargement of the abdomen, with development of milk in the breasts, fetal movements, etc. The patient says that during the latter months of pregnancy the baby moved about constantly and that she herself, through the abdominal wall, could easily palpate different parts of the fetus. During the early months of pregnancy she complained of morning sickness and severe constipation, and had suffered from an occasional severe pain in the right side of her abdomen but thought that this pain was due to indigestion. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
