Abstract EN

Placenta Percreta is one of the most challenging and serious obstetric emergencies which can lead to obstetric hemorrhage and life-threatening complications.

We present a case of placenta percreta in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) diagnosed by Doppler ultrasound.

The case was managed conservatively with uterine preservation.

The patient was managed by a multidisciplinary team.

No manipulation of the placenta was attempted.

Methotrexate was used as adjunct therapy, and weekly follow-up by serial ultrasound scan and Beta Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (BHCG) levels measurements.

Patient resumed her menstrual cycle after 7 months.
