A patient is described in whom the symptoms and signs of uterine rupture were not masked by combined spinal epidural analgesia with an epidural infusion of 0.1% bupivacaine and 1.5 microg ml(-l) fentanyl. Early recognition of the dehiscence of a previous caesarean section scar resulted in an excellent neonatal and maternal outcome.
