The authors report one case of cervical rupture in a normal uterus of a 43 years old second gravida, during an abortion at 16 weeks induced by sulprostone, a prostaglandin analogue. Case history and analysis of permittent condictions are listed. They conclude that uterus rupture remains an actual side effect of this prostaglandin E2 use, also when predisposing risk factors as scarred uterus, primigravid patients, age <20 years have been excluded, and gemeprost vaginal suppositories to ripen the cervix have been used.
