Abstract

Cesarean scar ectopic pregnancies are a rare form of extrauterine pregnancies, yet their incidence is increasing given the rise in cesarean deliveries. Similar to other ectopic pregnancies, cesarean scar ectopic pregnancies pose a great risk for maternal hemorrhage and ultimately maternal mortality. This study presents the case of a cesarean scar ectopic pregnancy in a patient with 3 prior cesarean deliveries. Here, we highlight the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of cesarean scar ectopic pregnancies.
