Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP) is a rare kind of ectopic pregnancy caused by the implantation of the gestational sac on cesarean section scar. CSP can cause massive bleeding and uterine rupture. Due to the lack of prospectiver and omized controlled studies on CSP; there is no clear consensus about diagnosis and treatment In this report, a CSP case reported, treatel with single dose methotrexate (MTX) and vaginal misoprostol combination. Although; single dose MTX and vaginal misoprostol combination was successful in our patient, the patients should be monitored carefully during this treatment against silent rupture and massive hemorrhage. The reandomized comprehensive studies are needed to reveal the reliability of a single dose of MTX and misoprostol combination therapy.
