Uterine rupture is defined as separation of the wall of the uterus. Spontaneous rupture is a rare catastrophic complication in pregnant uterus and rarest in nongravid uterus. The diagnosis is not always obvious, and morbidity and maternal and fetal mortality is still high in gravid uterus. We report the case of a 37-year-old nongravid multipara with spontaneous uterine rupture, with a previous history of lower segment cesarean section and myomectomy. There are only a few published literatures, and the present case is an exceptional case that we observe for the first time in our emergency department. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Practice-based learning and improvement, Patient care, Medical knowledge.
