Spontaneous bilateral tubal ectopic pregnancy is a rare occurrence. A case of a recently managed spontaneous bilateral tubal ectopic pregnancy is discussed. A 37-year-old grand multiparous farmer, who had been amenorrhoeic for 12 weeks, presented with lower abdominal pain, bleeding per vaginam, and dizziness. Other clinical and ultrasonographic findings were suggestive of ruptured ectopic gestation. Intra-operative findings included ruptured right tubal and unruptured left tubal ectopic pregnancies. Bilateral partial salpingectomy was performed with uneventful recovery. Intra-operative diagnosis of bilateral tubal ectopic pregnancy was confirmed by histology of the specimens.
