An Unusual Case of Placenta Percreta
Keywords:Placenta percreta, Extrauterine placenta
Placenta percreta is a rare and serious complication of pregnancy. A 35 years old pregnant woman with severe preeclampsia at 36 gestational weeks delivered a live small for gestational age (SGA) fetus by cesarean section. During the operation, as the fetus had been delivered, the placenta was observed to be perforating the uterus at fundal region attaching to the omentum. This is a rare case of an intrauterine
pregnancy with an extrauterine blood supply reaching almost term. Neither bleeding from placenta nor uterine rupture developed; and the infant was SGA and otherwise healthy.
