Is the presence of pseudosaccharide always related to ectopic pregnancy?

By Eric Saucedo de la Llata M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 04/06/2022

A pseudosac refers to an image obtained by ultrasound, which is relatively round and can be located within the uterine cavity or external to it in the case of an ectopic pregnancy.

This image will not always be observed in cases of extrauterine pregnancy, since no image may be observed, only the presence of free fluid or even the complete gestational sac with germinal vesicle, and when the ectopic gestation is greater than 6 weeks, an embryo with fetal heart rate may be visualized.
