Background: Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition commonly encountered in the emergency department and possesses high morbidity and mortality association in women of childbearing age. However, there are some unusual ectopic pregnancies that are rare. Objective: The purpose of this case series is to illustrate and familiarize clinicians with imaging findings along with risk factors and management strategies of less commonly encountered unusual ectopic gestations. Materials and Methods: Patients referred to the department of radiodiagnosis and imaging with unusual ectopic pregnancy were included. A 1–7 MHz convex transducer was used for transabdominal examinations, and a 3–12 MHz endovaginal ultrasound probe was used for transvaginal examinations. Conclusion: Incidence of gestations with ectopic implantations is rising, and knowledge of the imaging appearance of uncommon ectopic gestations is important for clinicians in correct diagnosis and timely treatment initiation.
