Abstract

Uterine rupture is a rare life threatening emergency with severe obstetric consequences. Most ruptures occur in a scarred uterus at the site of previous transmyometrial surgical incision. However, rupture on site distant from previous scar is a very rare entity. It is associated with major maternal and neonatal morbidity than rupture at a scarred area. Index case describes a scenario where uterine rupture occurred at the fundal region, far away from previous caesarean scar site leading to fetal demise. Till now, only a very few cases with uterine rupture away from the site of previous caesarean scar have been reported.
