An ectopic pregnancy can cause massive bleeding or uterine rupture. In particular types of ectopic pregnancies, such as cesarean scar ectopies, placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) can occur. To avoid these catastrophic events, ectopic pregnancies are ideally diagnosed and terminated in the first trimester.

A patient with an interstitial pregnancy undiagnosed until the third trimester. A multiparous woman was referred to us because of preeclampsia at 26 weeks of gestation. The placental position was the right fundus, and color Doppler ultrasound revealed myometrial thinning and subplacental hypervascularity, leading to a suspicion of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS). Emergency cesarean section was performed at 281/7 weeks of gestation due to severe preeclampsia. The right tubal horn to the isthmus of the fallopian tube bulged with placental adhesion and a part of the tube had ruptured, with the omentum adhering to the ruptured part. Interstitial and tubal isthmic pregnancy with uterine rupture was diagnosed.

In conclusion, here described a patient with interstitial pregnancy, in whom pregnancy continued until the third trimester. This condition may mimic PAS. Although its suggested a possible association between intestinal pregnancy and PE, further study is necessary to confirm this.
