ABSTRACT

It is very rare to see rupture of uterus in an unscarred uterus. But in cases of previous abortions or cesarean section or scarred uterus, uterine rupture is seen in few cases. Silent uterine rupture is very rare. If there is fetal demise & presenting part is very high up in pelvis not responding to routine induction, possibility of rupture uterus should be kept in mind. Ultrasound has an important role in the diagnosis of silent uterine rupture. A case of silent uterine rupture of unscarred uterus with fetal demise, that remained undiagnosed for many weeks, is described.
