Abstract

Incarceration of gravid uterus is a rare condition, occurring in one in 3,000 to 10,000 pregnancies during second trimester. Incarceration of uterus can cause several complications, such as uterine rupture, labor dystocia, and uncontrollable postpartum hemorrhage. Early diagnosis is important to prevent these complications, but there are no standard treatments of incarceration of gravid uterus. The authors present a case report of incarceration of gravid uterus caused by growing subserosal myoma, which was treated with myomectomy during second trimester.
