A case of placenta praevia accreta is described. Delivery was achieved by Caesarean section and the placenta was left in place because of the risk of haemorrhage. Successful internal iliac artery embolization was performed 9 days postpartum to control uterine bleeding. Hysterectomy was performed at 55 days postpartum because of bleeding and sepsis.
