Abstract
Spontaneous rupture of symphysis pubis during delivery is rare condition. The overall incidence is 1/600~1/30000 deliveries. The Separation was associated with considerable pain, swelling and tenderness over the symphysis pubis and confirmed roentgenographically. The condition was treated conservatively with bed rest, mostly in the lateral decubitus position, aided by a restrictive pelvic binder. Mobilization was initiated after pain relieved. Recovery can be expected to be complete. We present a case of spontaneous rupture of symphysis pubis during delivery with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Spontaneous rupture of symphysis pubis, delivery
