Abstract:

Couvelaire Uterus (CU) is a rare complication arising from life-threatening Placental Abruption (PA), involving the infiltration of blood into the uterine myometrium and serosa. Its occurrence is approximately 1%. The recommended treatment is obstetric hysterectomy, however there are situations where careful monitoring and timely decisions can prevent the need for such a procedure. This is a case where uterus was persevered after diffuse Couvelaire in a young primigravida with intrauterine fetal death.
