Abstract We have presented a case of partial rupture of the uterus along the left margin with both lamina of the broad uterine ligament torn off and tear of the left ovarian proper ligament in a 32-year-old patient in 36 weeks gestation. The patient, with no history of either surgery on the uterine muscles or incidents of abdominal trauma, presented with no contractions. She was qualified for an emergency laparotomy, underwent Caesarean section and the rupture of the uterine muscle was sutured. 14 days after surgery the mother and her baby were discharged from hospital in overall good condition.
