AbstractIntroduction: This term describes implantation within the myometrium of a prior cesarean delivery scar. Its incidence approximates 1 in 2000 normal pregnancies and has increased along with the cesarean delivery rate. It is rarest of all ectopic pregnancies. It is a life threatening condition, causes excessive haemorrhage and risk of uterine rupture.

Her obstetric score was Gravida 4 Para 2 Living 2 Abortion 1 with 6 weeks of amenorrhea. On eliciting her obstetric history, her married life was 10 years. She had history of one spontaneous abortion at 2 months of gestation for which a dilatation & evacuation was done. She had 2 previous Caesarian sections indicated because of low lying placenta and previous caesarean respectively. On Per abdomen examination, previous LSCS scar was seen and on palpation abdomen was soft and non tender with no scar tenderness. On per speculum examination minimal bleed was seen on the cervical os. On per Vaginal examination - uterus was normal in size, retroverted and bilateral fornices were free and non tender. An urgent USG OBS was advised, which showed- A gestational sac in the lower uterine segment along the anterior wall, with thinning of anterior myometrial wall. Adjacent to the sac, an heterogenous echogenicity was seen - likely previous LSCS scar.
