Trauma in a woman of child-bearing age is rarely discussed in urologic literature. However, it is the leading cause of maternal death during pregnancy. We propose that the standard workup for gross hematuria secondary to trauma be performed, in light of child-bearing age, since the greatest cause of fetal demise in this setting is maternal death.
