Spontaneous rupture of uterine varicose veins is a rare and poorly understood complication during pregnancy. Its clinical presentation is misleading and non-specific. Due to the high maternal and fetal mortality, the diagnosis of a hemoperitoneum must be done quickly. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of uterine varicose veins revealed by an abundant hemoperitoneum that occurred in a 35 year-old pregnant patient at 32 weeks of gestation. A laparotomy enabled the diagnosis and the treatment of this complication in addition to the extraction through a cesarean section of a healthy newborn.
