We present a case of spontaneous antepartum uterine rupture through a previous lower segment Caesarean section (LSCS) scar with clinical features mimicking an advanced extrauterine pregnancy (AEUP) in a twin pregnancy at 28 weeks gestation. This report illustrates the need to consider a diagnosis of a ruptured uterus in any patient with a previous abdominal delivery who presents with mild abdominal tenderness and an ultrasonographic image suggestive of demised fetus in the intra-peritoneal cavity.
