Abstract

Self-inflicted gunshot injury to the pregnant abdomen is occurring with increasing frequency. In the case presented, a suicide attempt, operative management was used. A review of the world literature demonstrates operative management to be the standard of care, although nonoperative management of select cases has been proposed.
