The aim of this review is to attract attention to this rare condition that still occurs and initiate cum sustain a high index of suspicion by Obstetricians to enable early diagnosis when prognosis for treatment is better. A search was made with various search engines in obstetric and related literature using relevant key words. All the materials got were sorted out and analyzed.
