Spontaneous rupture of uterine varices in the third trimester of pregnancy



Spontaneous rupture of uterine varices in the third trimester of pregnancy



Journal de Gynecologie Obstetrique et Biologie de la Reproduction 29(8): 801-802



We report a case of spontaneous rupture of a uterine varicosis in the third trimester of pregnancy resulting in massive peritoneal hemorrhage and maternal shock. This patient with an uncomplicated pregnancy presented symptoms suggestive of abruptio placenta with foetal distress. A caesarean section was performed identifying the cause and permitting the treatment of this syndrome. Since 1950, only 8 cases have been reported.
