Abstract

We reported a case of spontaneous uterine rupture in the first trimester of a woman who had had a traditional myomectomy operation 2.5 years earlier. Although uterine rupture is very rare in early pregnancy, it should be taken into consideration - in the differential diagnosis of acute abdomen - in all terms of pregnancy, especially when a predisposing factor exists.
