Abstract

We report a case of traumatic rupture of uterine fibroid with a haemo-peritoneum in a non-gravid uterus of a 40 year old Nigerian woman whose life was saved by surgical intervention. Treatment consisted of subtotal hysterectomy. A high index of suspicion is required in order to enable prompt surgical intervention.
