Placenta increta is a life-threatening complication of pregnancy and usually presented in the early postpartum period with hemorrhage during difficult placental removal. Placenta increta may also complicate first and early second-trimester pregnancy loss, causing profuse post- curettage hemorrhage. We have confirmed a case of placenta increta in which emergency hysterectomy was performed due to acute profuse vaginal bleeding following dilatation curretage during the first trimester pregnancy. So we present it with a brief review of the concerned literatures.
Key Words: Placenta increta, 1st trimester, Dilatation and currettage
