The present study describes the case of a woman with full term pregnancy diagnosed with bipartite placenta during gestational monitoring. She presented intrapartum placenta accreta, subjected to conservative management and with intrauterine retained placenta. Subsequent ultrasound monitoring evidenced a decrease in size and vascularization of the retained placenta. After confirming stabilization of the condition, surgical hysteroscopy was performed, with resection of the retained placental tissue and complete resolution of the disorder.
