BACKGROUND: : Molar pregnancy found in a cesarean scar is exceedingly rare. It can be challenging to manage and can have potentially catastrophic consequences.
CASE: : A 34-year-old multigravid woman presented with persistent symptoms of pregnancy after a surgical termination of pregnancy. Cesarean scar molar pregnancy was suspected on ultrasonography, and suction evacuation was performed under ultrasound guidance. This was followed by bimanual compression, oxytocin, and uterine artery embolization to reduce bleeding.
CONCLUSION: : A high index of suspicion is needed for early diagnosis and management of cesarean scar molar pregnancy.
