Spontaneous hemorrhage into the amniotic cavity is a very rare complication of pregnancy. In the case described here, acute intraamniotic hemorrhage occurred as the result of the rupture of the blood vessels in membranous marginal cord insertion in physiological week 36 of a multiparous pregnancy. Fast and accurate diagnosis afforded a satisfactory result. The aim in presenting this case report is to draw attention to important aspects of the diagnostic and therapeutic process in this difficult form of placental pathology.
