Placenta accreta is defined as the abnormal adherence of the placenta, totally or in part, to the underlying uterine surface. It is uncommon to find this abnormality of the attachment of the placenta in the first half or pregnancy. Only 10 cases have been reported. We present a case of placenta accreta in the first trimester in a patient with three previous curettages as a risk factor, diagnosed during curettage for a fourth missed abortion that required total abdominal hysterectomy. This case follows the pattern of those previously reported.
