Özet

Spontaneous rupture of a gravid uterus is a life-threatening obstetric emergency with high maternal mortality and morbidity, perinatal mortality and loss of future fertility as hysterectomy maybe inevitable in most cases. Most spontaneous uterine ruptures occur during labor in parturients with a scarred uterus. Rupture of unscarred uterus is a rare event involving 1/17,000 - 20,0000 and occur more frequently in older multiparous patients [1 - 3]. Here, we present a case of spontaneous rupture of uterus in a primigravid woman which was successfully repaired.
