Placental polyp is an intrauterine polypoidal or pedunculated mass of placental tissue retaining for an indefinite period after delivery or abortion. Because of its rarity, the literature contains few references, and there are great varieties not only on its diagnosis but also the management. We present a rare case of placenta accreta presenting as a uterine polyp. This is the only one case diagnosed at our hospital and managed conservatively.
