August 04, 2018 | Amol Tilve, Roque Ribeiro

Succenturiate lobe of placenta is a morphological abnormality, in which there are one or multiple accessory lobes connected to the main part of the placenta by blood vessels. It has been known to be located on the lower segment and then present either as placenta previa or as a case of vasa previa, if vessels connecting the main placenta with the succenturiate placenta lie below the presenting part. Here, we present a rare case of antepartum hemorrhage resulting from the abruption of the succenturiate lobe of placenta.
