Objective: Uterine rupture is one of the most serious obstetric complications, with an increased risk of maternal and perinatal morbidity, and even mortality. Case Report: A multiparous woman came to our labor room at 41 weeks of gestation for induction of labor due to being post-term and having a nonreactive nonstress test. She had no history of abdominal or gynecologic surgery. Emergent cesarean section was performed due to prolonged decelerations shown on the fetal monitor. A 12 cm uterine laceration was identified after opening the abdominal cavity. Fortunately, her uterus was preserved and her postoperative condition was stable. Conclusion: To avoid maternal and fetal morbidity, or even mortality, obstetricians should be aware of the possible existence of uterine rupture in an unscarred uterus.
