A male fetus was extruded from the uterus following multiple lower abdominal stab wounds to the mother. He was brought to the emergency room at 8 hours of age. He had sustained a compound skull fracture with brain contusion. There was no neurological deficit. Debridement and primary wound closure were undertaken. His mother had multiple lacerations to the uterus and a laceration of the fundus of the bladder. Following resuscitation, she had repair of the uterus and bladder and made an uneventful recovery. At 3 years of age, the boy is developing normally.
