Abstract  
Cervical pregnancy is a rare form of non-tubal ectopic pregnancy. Although uncommon, this condition can determine serious complications with massive hemorrhages and a high rate of fatality. The choice of the appropriate management depends on several factors, such as severity of vaginal bleeding, gestational age, serum β-hCG level, and on embryonic cardiac activity. However, no specific guidelines have been developed, and the “gold standard” treatment has yet to be defined. The authors report a case of cervical pregnancy successfully managed through a combined approach of percutaneous bilateral uterine artery embolization immediately followed by cervical curettage.
