Morbidly adherent placenta usually presents with heavy bleeding and difficulty in placental removal in the third stage. Although association of morbidly adherent placenta with previous caesarean section or uterine surgery is well documented the exact pathogenesis of placenta accrete still remains unknown. We hereby report a case of spontaneous second trimester abortion followed by recurrent intermittent hemorrhage leading to hypovolemic shock. Following this hysterectomy was done, which on histopathology revealed placenta increta away from previous uterine scar site. Pathogenesis in this case for morbidly adherent placentation seems to be resembling that in a woman without any previous uterine surgery or scar, which is quite unusual. We report this case with a brief review of the literature.
