Abstract
Placenta previa-percreta is a rare but highly morbid condition usually diagnosed clinically, intraoperatively. The cause of placenta accreta is considered to be deficient decidualization and absence of the fibrinous layer of Nitabuch. The condition is usually, but not always, seen in women having previous trauma, eg, cesarean section, manual removal of placenta, or curettage. Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) might allow antepartum diagnosis of the this condition. Management included cesarean supracervical hysterectomy and bilateral hypogastric arterial ligation, and adjuvant methotrexate administration. We experienced a case of placenta previa percreta at 40 weeks gestational age. Here we present the case with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Placenta previa-percreta, Csarean section, Nthotrexate, magnetic resonance
