Ectopic pregnancy on the scar of a previous cesarean is a very rare entity with a prevalence ranging from 1: 1,800 to 1: 2,226 pregnancies [1] and corresponds to only 6% of ectopic pregnancies in women with a previous cesarean section [2]. Its increasing incidence in recent years is associated not only with the increase in the number of caesarean sections, but also with the increase of scarring in the endometrium due to uterine curettage, myomectomies, hysteroscopies, manual delivery of the placenta and assisted fertilization techniques [3]. We present a case report of a patient with a serious complication due to this pathology.
