Majority cases of Caesarean Scar Pregnancies (CSP) reported till date involves singleton pregnancy. This case series discusses two Caesarean Scar Pregnancies. Initial presentations, diagnosis and management of a rare case of advanced heterotopic pregnancy in which CSP coexisted with intrauterine pregnancy and another case of grade 4 CSP are discussed here in detail. Both patients discussed here underwent laparotomy followed by hysterectomy because of continued severe hemorrhage and recovered well during postoperative follow up visits.

A brief review of published literatures regarding diagnostic modalities and management options for CSP was performed and discussed here.
