Introduction: Ectopic pregnancy in the previous uterine scar is a relatively new site of ectopic implantation due to the increase in caesarean sections, representing 6% of ectopic pregnancies in patients with 1 previous caesarean section. Case report: 26-year-old woman, G3C2 with short intergenic period (last obstetric event: 01-12-2017 and date of last menstruation: 08-28-2018), attends assessment due to poor and painless tansvaginal bleeding. Anembryonic pregnancy is diagnosed by vaginal ultrasound. It is decided to give medical treatment with misoprostol 800mcg vaginally 1 dose every 3 days for 2 doses. Conclusion: Uterine perforation is an expected complication of an EUMA however the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy in the previous uterine scar due to the increased risk of uterine perforation must be taken into account.
