Cervical abortion is a spontaneous abortion of an intrauterine pregnancy into the cervical canal where theabortus is retained by a closed external os, causing distension of the cervical canal. Cervical abortion should bedistinguished from the cervical pregnancy. We present a case of cervical abortion diagnosed preoperatively bytransvaginal sonography and color doppler imaging, and treated by dilatation and curettage. Charateristictransvaginal sonographic findings and identification of subtrophoblastic blood flow by color doppler imaging couldallow differentiation of the cevical aborition from the cervical pregnancy.
