Abstract

Incarceration of the gravid uterus is a rare but serious complication of pregnancy. Reported is the case of a gravida 2, para 1 26-year-old woman who presented with lower abdominal pain. The patient was 14 weeks pregnant and presented with a one-day history of abdominal pain and vaginal discharge. Examination revealed a retroflexed uterus with the cervical opening pointing toward the anterior abdominal wall. An ultrasound revealed a uterus incarcerated between the sacral promontory and the pubis. Manual reduction was performed successfully in the emergency department.
