Caesarean scar ectopic is one of the rarest of all ectopic pregnancies. It is defined as when a blastocyst implants on a previous Caesarean scar. The incidence Caesarean scar ectopic increased due to increase in number of Caesarean deliveries. Early diagnosis of this can be done using sonography. It is very important because a delay can lead to increased maternal morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis leads to prompt management and improves outcomes by allowing preservation of future fertility. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has important role when sonography is equivocal or inconclusive before therapy or intervention. We are reporting a rare case report of G3P2l2 with previous two Caesarean deliveries and diagnosed as Caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy with the help of sonography and MRI. She underwent laparotomy and on histopathological examination Caesarean scar pregnancy confirmed.
