Introduction: Uterine rupture in pregnancy is rare and often catastrophic with high incidence of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The most common cause of uterine rupture is separation of previous cesarean hysterotomy scar. Other common predisposing factors to uterine rupture are previous traumatizing operations or manipulations such as curettage, perforation, myomectomy and excessive or inappropriate uterine stimulation with oxytocin.

Case Report: In this case, spontaneous rupture of uterine at 25-26 weeks gestation (twin pregnancy) in a 36 year old woman has been reported(G5P2A2L1). She was hospitalized so that preeclampsia can be rule out for her. She underwent laparoscopic removal of myoma and 3 months later IVF was done for her because of secondary infertility. During hospitalization, suddenly she had mild vaginal bleeding and decreased fetal movement. Emergency sonography reported that the two fetuses died and severe oligohydramnius and myomatosis uterine with the biggest size was 90mm.

Conclusion: Try of labor was done for her but she didn't respond to induction and the patient was qualified for cesarean section. During the operation, the rupture of the uterine wall was seen in the site of the previous myomectomy and the two dead fetuses were observed in the abdomen without myoma in the uterin. The myoma that was reported by the sonologist was hematoma and omentoma. Uterine wall was repaired
