Abstract

Case report

A 28-year-old woman presented with massive postpartum hemorrhage. Laparotomy revealed a cesarean scar dehiscence due to wound infection.

Conclusion

Although postpartum hemorrhage due to cesarean scar dehiscence is an unusual complication, practitioners should add dehiscence to their differential diagnoses.
