Heterotropic pregnancy is reported infrequently in Nigeria. Two cases were managed within the span of five years with the successful delivery of a live term baby in one of the patients. A high clinical index of suspicion is required because an intra uterine gestation does not rule out a co-existing ectopic gestation especially in this region with high twinning rate and tubal disease
