SUAREZ GONZALEZ, Juan Antonio et al. Increta placenta in uterine horn. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.1, pp. 71-79. ISSN 1561-3062.

The placenta is a maternal fetal organ with important functions throughout pregnancy and fetal development. Sometimes it can develop anatomical, structural, or functional abnormalities, and sometimes these are associated with the implantation site. A case of placenta accreta in the uterine horn is presented. This is a rare location, as intraoperative finding during a Caesarean section followed by an obstetric hysterectomy. Illustrative images of the surgical specimen are shown as well as macro and microscopic pictures of pathology of such unusual location of this disorder. A case of increta placenta is presented in an unusual location such as uterine horn with the aim to review the issue.

Keywords : placenta; cesarean section; obstetric hysterectomy.
