Abstract

Spontaneous haemoperitoneum due to rupture of a vein overlying a myoma, however, is a rare entity it and may cause anaemia and hypovolemic shock. The first case was reported by Von Rokitansky in 1861 as an autopsy finding. To-date, less than 100 cases have been reported in the literature. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of a vein overlying leiomyoma causing life-threatening blood loss necessitating massive transfusion and emergency surgery.
