- Uterine rupture in a healthy uterus in the 2nd
and 3rd trimester of pregnancy is a rare and serious
obstetric complication involving vital maternal and fetal
prognosis and the obstetric outcome of patients in the
absence of diagnosis and immediate management. It
mainly occurs in a scarred uterus and remains anecdotal
in a healthy uterus. We report two cases of uterine
rupture in a healthy uterus.
We discuss through these cases and the review of
the literature, the extreme caution that should be taken
to use misoprostol in the event of induction of labor as
well as the clinical signs, risk factors, diagnostic
methodology and therapeutic management of this rare
but potentially serious entity.
