Uterine rupture in the second trimester is rare, but it is a surgical emergency. Also it results rapid deterioration of patient and high mortality despite of prompt therapy and massive transfusion. Radiologic studies often do not allow definitive diagnosis of it, so clinical judgement is critical for optimizing patient care. We present a case of spontaneous uterine rupture with fetal death in 17 weeks of pregnancy due to placenta percreta with brief review of the literature.
