ABSTRACT

Ectopic pregnancy is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among fertile women. Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is the rarest type of ectopic pregnancy. It is a lifethreatening abnormal form of implantation of a gestational sac in the myometrium at the site of a previous cesarean scar. A case of 23-year-old woman with previous cesarean section, torrential hemorrhage during dilatation, and evacuation carried out for retained products of conception is being reported. The patient finally required hysterectomy to stop the hemorrhage. The provisional diagnosis of CSP was made during laparotomy and later confirmed by histopathological examination.

Keywords: Cesarean scar pregnancy, Methotrexate, Myometrium, Obstetric hysterectomy.
