Case presentation: The patient was a 37-year old who had an unwanted pregnancy due to tubectomy failure two years afterwards. She was hospitalized at 26th and 30th week of gestation because of gross hematuria. Sonography reported placenta previa. Cesarean section was performed at 34th gestational week. Due to severe hemorrhage, hysterectomy with resection of some part of the bladder was done. Died at the operating room after four hours of severe uncontrollable hemorrhage.
Conclusion: The increasing prevalence of different forms of placenta accreta is the result of the ever-increasing rate of cesarean deliveries. One of the strategies to prevent this catastrophic obstetric complication is decreasing the number of cesarean deliveries without appropriate indications.
