Pregnancy in a caesarean scar is a rare entity where the pregnancy is implanted into a prior caesarean delivery uterine scar and located outside the normal uterine cavity. We report a case of caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy occurring in the scar of a previous caesarean section, diagnosed by ultrasonography and Doppler and the surgical management of such a case following failure of medical therapy. We present history, clinical findings and imaging of our case followed by discussion about, diagnosing and management of such a case and the options available.

Keywords: CSP – Caesarean scar pregnancy, LSCS- Lower segment caesarean section, POG – Period of gestation.
