Acute abdomen and massive hemorrhage due to placenta percreta leading to spontaneous uterine rupture in the second trimester



Acute abdomen and massive hemorrhage due to placenta percreta leading to spontaneous uterine rupture in the second trimester



Saudi Medical Journal 35(9): 1131-1132



Placental invasion anomalies are rare obstetrical complications. They cause severe third trimester hemorrhage, severe postpartum bleeding, and maternal morbidity and mortality unless they are diagnosed antenatally. We present a rare case with placenta percreta leading to spontaneous uterine rupture during the second trimester with an acute abdomen and hypovolemia.
