A 26-year-old woman in the fourth pregnancy with a history of two Cesarean sections and one dilation and curettage was admitted to the hospital at 18 weeks of gestation with acute abdominal pain. Life-saving laparotomy revealed uterine rupture and placental invasion into the uterine wall. Supracervical hysterectomy was performed. This case shows that pathological placentation due to previous cesarean sections may be the cause of uterine rupture.

ABSTRACT: A cesarean scar pregnancy is a pregnancy located within the uterine muscle after previous cesarean sections. Recent years have shown a significant increase in the rate of CS and an improvement in the ultrasound diagnosis, and therefore a trend towards an increase in the rate of CSP cases has been reported in many countries. We report on a case of CSP diagnosed using ultrasound at 5/6 weeks'gestation and confirmedbymagnetic resonance imaging. The patient underwent surgical management at 13 weeks, combined with the chemioembolization of the uterine arteries. The current review aims to update the knowledge of the available treatment modalities.
