Uterine rupture during pregnancy after abdominal myomectomy is an uncommon complication. Most of these cases occur during the third trimester of pregnancy or during labor. We report a 16-week pregnant lady with previous history of abdominal myomectomy presenting with acute abdomen. Emergency laparotomy revealed a spontaneous uterine rupture. The fetus within the amniotic sac and the placenta were expelled in the abdominal cavity. Although it is rare, uterine rupture may occur early in pregnancy.
