Rupture of the unscarred uterus in a primigravid patient is a very unusual event associated with high perinatal and maternal morbidity and mortality. Case Presentation: A 24-year-old primigravid woman, presented at term gestation with mild labor pains. During labor course there was pathological cardiotocography. An emergency cesarean was performed and a partial uterine rupture was found. Conclusion: Though a rare event but even in a primigravid patient. Rupture of the uterus should be considered in pregnant women with hemoperitoneum, even when caesarean section is absent from the obstetric history.
