Abstract

Background: First trimester curettage is one of the most common gynecological surgical procedures. Uterine rupture during pregnancy, following this procedure may occur. Case
Presentation: A 33 years-old woman, with a history of surgical abortion by aspiration; was referred to our tertiary referral center with anhydramnios at 25 weeks of gestation. The ultrasound revealed an amniotic sac protrusion in the abdominal cavity measuring 110 mm x 100 mm associated with a silent postero-lateral uterine rupture, which was confirmed by MRI. A live 715 g male neonate was delivered by caesarean section. Conclusion: Uterine rupture during pregnancy, following first trimester curettage may occur although this is a rare phenomenon.
