Uterine rupture during the course of pregnancy is an uncommon obstetric event. Rupture of an unscarred uterus is rare, whereas rupture of a scarred uterus is more common and is usually the result of a Cesarean section. Uterine rupture during pregnancy usually occurs in patient with a scarred uterus, and recurrent uterine rupture usually occurs at a prior ruptured site. However, recurrent uterine rupture that occurs at a different site, regardless of prior rupture site, has yet to be reported. The patient described in this case report had cervical dysplasia with positive for human papilloma virus (HPV) type 16. As the presence of a precancerous lesion in the cervix is reported to increase the risk of preterm birth and spontaneous uterine rupture, a possible correlation between recurrent uterine rupture and cervical dysplasia was considered for this patient.
Key Words: Recurrent uterine rupture, Cornual pregnancy, Cervical dysplasia
