Javed Ali , Pronamika Konyak
Puerperal haematomas following delivery pose a great threat to the patient and a challenge to the obstetricians. A 26 years old female with parity 2 attended at day 1 of puerperium following vaginal delivery in a periphery centre with anaemic and abdominal distension. The patient gave history of applying pressure over her abdomen during the birthing process. Intraoperatively, a large haematoma was seen in the uterovesical pouch (approx 20 cm x 7 cm) and drainage of haematoma was done. Post operative period was uneventful and the patient was discharged on day 5 post operatively.
