Abstract
Puerperal genital hematomas are uncommon causes of postpartum hemorrhage but can be a cause of serious morbidity and even maternal death. When puerperal genital hematomas are clinically occult despite significant blood loss or found as delayed postpartum hemorrhage, there is a high risk of shock. We report a case with shock accompanied by rupture of progressive retroperitoneal hematoma through left upper vaginal wall on 2nd postpartum day.
Key Words: Postpartum hemorrhage, Retroperitoneum, Hematoma
