PHOTO: Tubal Pregnancy at 26 Weeks

This is a picture of a highly unusual phenomenon: a baby who survived an ectopic tubal pregnancy up to 26 weeks. The authors of the journal article cited another article of a case of a tubal pregnancy that had survived up to 26 weeks. Normally tubal pregnancies rupture by 12 weeks if nothing is done.

The fallopian tube, with the baby, and the ovary was removed.
