A delay in diagnosis can lead to uterine rupture, massive hemorrhage, and serious maternal morbidity. However, the optimal treatment is unknown. We experienced a case of viable cesarean scar pregnancy diagnosed at 13 weeks of gestation treated with uterine artery embolization and report with a brief of literatures.
