Abstract We report the case of a maternal death occurring after spontaneous rupture of a uterine artery immediately following delivery. The patient presented abdominal pain and a collapsus one hour after a normal delivery. Laparotomy revealed massive haemoperitoneum and intraperitoneal bleeding from the right uterine artery. Ligature of the uterine artery and hemostasis hysterectomy were performed but the patient died of multivisceral failure 18 h after the delivery. This is the first case report of maternal death occurring after spontaneous rupture of a uterine artery.
