BACKGROUND: Placenta percreta in early pregnancy has been documented in only a few cases. This is the first report of placenta percreta diagnosed after an extended period from pregnancy termination. CASE: A woman with a history of a previous cesarean section presented with heavy and irregular vaginal bleeding beginning immediately after pregnancy termination at 7 weeks' gestation. Failed response to hormonal treatment and curettage necessitated hysterectomy. Histologic examination revealed a placenta percreta. CONCLUSION: Although placenta percreta is an uncommon occurrence, clinicians should consider it in patients who have a uterotomy scar and complain of long-term metrorrhagia following pregnancy termination.
