Ruptured uterus, a life-threatening obstetric complication, is a rare event among booked patients. We present a case of uterine rupture in a 28-year-old Gravida 2.para 1 +0 , 1 alive with previous lower segment Caesarean scar due to neglected obstructed labor from fetal macrosomia. She presented in labor at 40 weeks of gestation after declining the advice for an elective Caesarean section (C/S) and also signed against medical advice to receive care from a traditional birth attendant. She returned 30 hours later with a ruptured uterus. Findings at operation included a macerated stillbirth weighing 4.30 kg and a lower segment transverse scar rupture. Subtotal hysterectomy and peritoneal lavage were performed.
