Rudimentary horn pregnancy: an unusual cause of spontaneous hemoperitoneum during the second-trimester of pregnancy



Rudimentary horn pregnancy: an unusual cause of spontaneous hemoperitoneum during the second-trimester of pregnancy



Gynecologie Obstetrique and Fertilite 39(2): E44



Spontaneous hemoperitoneum during pregnancy is an unusual but serious event. We report a case of profuse spontaneous hemoperitoneum resulting from the rupture of a non-communicating rudimentary uterine horn at 26 weeks of gestation. An emergency laparotomy was performed and a 900 g birth weight safe infant was delivered. We performed a hemi-hysterectomy in the same time. Fetal and maternal outcomes resulted without complication. Causes of spontaneous hemoperitoneum are discussed.
