Abruptio placentae is a complication of pregnancy associated with significant morbidity and mortality for both fetus and mother. The presence of uterine pain and tenderness traditionally has been considered a useful criterion for distinguishing abruptio placentae from other causes of bleeding in pregnancy. We report the case of a 25-year-old woman who presented with painless abruptio placentae and coagulopathy during the second trimester. This case illustrates the importance of considering this diagnosis in pregnant patients with vaginal bleeding.
