Abstract

Placenta percreta occurs when chorionic villi penetrate through the myometrium up to the serosa. The incidence of placenta percreta is extremely rare, but it is accompanied by serious complications of pregnancy and their prediction is very difficult. Since spontaneous uterine rupture during the second trimester is an obstetric emergency, it is critical that the proper management should be taken promptly in order to decrease the maternal morbidity and mortality. We present a case of spontaneous uterine rupture in 17 weeks of pregnancy.
