Obstetric hemorrhages are still the most common cause of maternal mortality worldwide (1). Uterine rupture, which could be included among the causes of postpartum bleeding, results in serious mortality and morbidity. Although scarless uterine rupture is extremely rare, it might be seen with an approximate frequency of 1/5700 - 1/20000 in pregnancies (2-5). In general, it is diagnosed and treated in the early postpartum period as it usually presents symptoms at this very stage. A case of uterine rupture that was diagnosed and treated on the 28th postpartum day was discussed in this case.
