That pregnancy occassionally occured outside the cavity of the uterus has been known for some centuries. A case has been recorded by Albucasis, an Arabian physician, who lived in Spain during the eleventh century. Several cases were recorded during the sixteenth century; but it was not till the century following that descripttions with any claims to exactitude were given, and that any distinction between the varieties was made. Dr W.Campbell of Edinburgh in his work "Memoirs of Extra-uterine Pregnancy" enters very fully into the history of the subject, mentioning nearly all the cases which were recorded before his time. Even then the subject seemes to have attracted attention more because of the supposed extreme rarity of the condition, than of the importance which it deserved from a clinical point of view.
