Spontaneous uterine rupture during the first trimester of a
Spontaneous uterine rupture in the first trimester is rare and usually occurs in a scarred or malformed uterus. Clinicians should consider this diagnosis in the presence of acute abdominal pain in early pregnancy.

Spontaneous uterine rupture in the first trimester is a redoubtable obstetric emergency that carries a high risk for both mother and fetus.

Doctors present the case of a spontaneous uterine rupture in a patient with a scarred uterus at 9?weeks' gestation treated by laparotomy in the emergency obstetrical department; whose histological examination of the removed material found a partial mole.

Since the rate of uterine surgeries is increasing, it is necessary to highlight the risk of a uterine rupture occurring early in order to improve their management. Molar pregnancy is a factor of the fragility of the uterine wall and uterine rupture must be suspected in any molar pregnancy associated with a hemoperitoneum.
