OBJECTIVE: To report a case of cesarean scar molar pregnancy. CASE REPORT: A 31-year-old, gravida 8, para 1, female patient underwent suction curettage for a diagnosis of molar pregnancy. However, she had persistent vaginal spotting and residual decidual tissue in a cesarean scar. She was successfully treated with repeat suction curettage. CONCLUSION: Cesarean scar pregnancy is difficult to diagnose and must be considered in the patient with a history of cesarean section who has persistent vaginal bleeding after suction curettage. To our knowledge, this is the first report of molar pregnancy in a cesarean scar.
