    ABSTRACT: A 35-year-old unbooked gravida 6 para 5+0 woman with 4 living children, who was unsure of her last menstrual period but she adjudged her index pregnancy to be term. She presented to the emergency unit with six months history of progressive weight loss, difficulty in breathing and abdominal pain that suddenly got worse about two days prior to presentation after an attempted external cephalic version by a traditional birth attendant.

An emergency laparotomy revealed collapsed fetal membranes with a rent of about 10 centimeters in diameter on the right and straw-colored amniotic fluid of about 2 litres in peritoneal cavity. A live male fetus was delivered with birth weight of 2.9 kilograms. The umbilical cord was cut and tied short close to the placenta which was left in situ and methotrexate was given. Post operative condition was satisfactory and patient had a brisk recovery. She was adequately counseled and discharged home on the 12th day after surgery and followed up subsequently.
