Implantation of a pregnancy within the scar of a previous cesarean delivery is a very rare form of ectopic pregnancy. However, this type of ectopic pregnancy is considered to be a life-threatening condition because of the very high risk of uterine rupture and uncontrollable hemorrhage. Unfortunately, optimal treatment have not been established. We present here a case of ectopic pregnancy in the previous cesarean scar treated with combined systemic and local intra-amniotic methotrexate successfully.
Key Words: Cesarean scar, Ectopic pregnancy, Methotrexate
