Placenta accreta is defined as a condition involving an abnormal adherence of the placenta to the myometrium. It is rare for placenta accreta to present before 20 weeks' gestation; only eight cases have been previously reported. This case report describes a first-trimester placenta accreta which presented during suction curettage for missed abortion. The major risk factors for placenta accreta are related to previous uterine trauma. Considering the rising rate of operative births in the United States, it is possible that the incidence of placenta accreta in early gestation will increase.
