Abstract

Spontaneous rupture of uterine surface varicose veins is rare but may result in serious complication of pregnancy, as it is associated with high perinatal and maternal mortality. We report a 24-year-old primigravida who presented with this rare condition mimicking placenta abruption, which was successfully managed. A review of reported cases was performed.
