Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cesarean scar pregnancy is implantation of the pregnancy within the fibrous tissue of the cesarean scar which is completely surrounded by myometrium. METHOD AND RESULT: A 32-year-old woman, gravida 2, para 1 presented at our emergency department with mild lower abdominal pain and minimal vaginal bleeding. She was diagnosed with cesarean scar pregnancy. Conservative treatment with methotrexate 50 mg/m2 was administered IM on days 0 and 8. Her betaHCG value was zero at the 14th week after beginning of the treatment. CONCLUSION: Repeated methotrexate administration in the management of cesarean scar pregnancy should be attempted in informed patients who especially desire fertility and can be closely followed up.
