Background: Uterine rupture is a very serious obstetrical complication with various etiologies: fetopelvic
disproportion, dystocic presentations and misuse of oxytocics, but the rarest and most serious etiology is
posttraumatic rupture which represents 1% of these etiologies. We report a case of uterine rupture by direct
abdominal trauma during a road traffic accident (MVA). This is an obstetrical emergency with a vital maternal
and fetal prognosis, requiring rapid intervention and multidisciplinary management.
