Abstract
Introduction: Cesarean scar pregnancy is a life-threatening condition, especially in the advanced gestational age. Optimal management has not yet been established because this is a rare condition.
Case Report: A 30-year-old female, with a previous cesarean, diagnosed with a viable cesarean scar pregnancy with 11 weeks of gestation. Successful termination of cesarean scar pregnancy was achieved with systemic and local (ultrasound-guided) methotrexate administration with subsequent dilatation and evacuation, under ultrasound guidance, in a two- stage procedure: rupture of the amniotic sac with partial removal of the fetus and one week later total evacuation of uterine content, with satisfactory hemostasis.
Conclusion: Cesarean scar pregnancy is associated with a high morbidity and adverse consequences for future fertility. There is no optimal management established, because of the rarity of the condition. We present a case of successful termination of an advanced first trimester cesarean scar pregnancy.

Keywords: Cesarean scar pregnancy, Intracardiac methotrexate injection, Uterine evacuation
