We report a case of uterine dehiscence during pregnancy. Uterine dehiscence and rupture are serious complications of pregnancy. This situation takes place especially in women that prior uterine operation(s). We represent a 30-year-old woman diagnosed uterine dehiscence at 22nd gestation week. Uterine dehiscence treated surgically and then medical treatment was given to prevent preterm labour. At 34th gestation week, the patient was operated because of preterm labour and an alive foetus was born. The result of the pathologic examination of the placenta: Placental adhesion failure was detected. In conclusion women with prior caesarean delivery (one or more), ultrasound measurement should be recommended for measuring the lower uterine segment thickness in order to predict the possibility of uterine dehiscence and rupture.
