A 36-year primigravida presented at 16 weeks of gestation after a spontaneous conception for antenatal registration after primary infertility of 10 years. She had a history of myomectomy done by laparoscopy, 2 months before conception for a 10 cm posterior intra mural fibroid. At 33 weeks and 4 days of gestation, she had started leaking per vagina with left upper side abdominal pain. Her NST showed spontaneous decelerations and emergency LSCS was done. Intra operatively, there was hemoperitoneum due to uterine dehiscence at left cornua which was the previous myomectomy scar site. Baby was delivered and the lower segment uterine scar and dehiscence site were sutured in layers. The patient and baby recovered well.
