Spontaneous hemoperitoneum in second trimester of pregnancy is a very rare but lethal condition which demands prompt diagnosis and management for the survival of both mother and fetus.

In a District Hospital patient was managed conservatively and referred but was brought dead at tertiary level hospital. On autopsy gross hemoperitoneum was found without any injury and uterine artery found ruptured against the suspicion of brutal beating by the relatives of husband.
