Abstract provided by Publisher
Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is the rarest form of ectopic
pregnancies that can cause serious complications.
A 37 year-old woman with past history of gravida 4, parity
2, cesarian section, admitted to our outpatient clinic
with the complaint of mild pelvic pain and 6 weeks 2 day
of amenorrhea. On admission, her serum β-human chorionic
gonadotropin (β-hCG) level was 26905 mIU/mL and
transvaginal ultrasound revealed a 24 mm gestational sac
implanted at the site of her prior cesarean section scar.
Initial treatment with single-dose systemic methotrexate
(MTX) (1mg/kg; 60 mg) was not sufficient so the dose of
MTX (60 mg) was repeated. In the follow-up the gestational
sac continued to increase in size and patient started
to feel abdominal discomfort, so we performed an ultrasound-
guided dilatation and curettage to obtain complete
remission. MTX treatment alone or in conjunction with
dilatation-curettage may avoid unnecessary laparotomy,
hysterectomy and preserve fertility CSP patients.
