Abstract

This clinical study reports a case of rectus sheath hematoma in a 32-year-old woman with a pregnancy at 33 weeks of gestation, who developed acute right-sided abdominal pain following anticoagulant administration for pulmonary embolism. The rectus sheath hematoma was identified during an emergency cesarean section initiated due to severe fetal bradycardia. The present case would have been easy to manage prenatally if the presence of rectus sheath hematoma had been added as a differential diagnosis. For future cases, timely recognition and therapy could help prevent premature cesarean delivery.
