A type of morbidly adherent placenta in which chorionic villi completely invade the myometrium and may invade the serosa or adjoining organs, is known as Placenta Percreta. It is a very rare pregnancy problem and is associated with a high maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. We present a case of placenta praevia percreta with massive intra-partum hemorrhage requiring an emergency cesarean hysterectomy.

Keywords: Morbidly adherent Placenta, Placenta Percreta, Cesarean Hysterectomy.
