Uterine rupture is a potential obstetric catastrophe. We report a case of a gravida 2 para 1 with intrapartum unscarred uterine fundal rupture. Immediate resuscitation, laparotomy and hysterectomy, was done with maternal survival. History of passive cocaine smoke exposure elicited postoperatively was the possible etiology leading to complete fundal rupture. This case is an eye opener as regards to ill effects of drug abuse even though passive. A careful history of drug abuse must be elicited when the common causes of uterine rupture have been excluded or the rupture site is unusual.
