|Abstract:||Morbidly adherent placenta is a rare complication of human placentation that may threaten maternal life due to massive haemorrhage. Its incidence is increasing due to the rising caesarean section rates worldwide. A high degree of clinical suspicion coupled with ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cystoscopy helps in antenatal diagnosis. Elective caesarean hysterectomy with a multidisciplinary approach is the conventional treatment for confirmed cases of morbidly adherent placenta. However more conservative fertility saving approaches are also used successfully.|
