A 65 year old lady para 3, presented with acute abdominal pain and vomiting to the surgical emergency. She was admitted,investigated and kept on conservative management. Her blood investigations, CT scan findings suggested bowel perforation. On laparotomy, acute gas gangrene infection of uterus was found leading to myometrial necrosis and perforation. Hysterectomy was performed and patient started on antibiotics but patient did not improve in postoperative period and expired. On histopathology, sepsis with gas gangrene was confirmed.
