Placental abruption is a very serious complication of the second half of pregnancy. This condition threatens the pregnant woman with serious bleeding which is often accompanied by syndrome of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy. The fetus is in danger of prematurity, hypoxia and often ends with intrauterine fetal death. Although the risk factors leading to the placental abruption are generally known, the etiology is usually unknown. This case report describes the case of serious placental abruption of a patient without risk factors. Placental abruption led to disseminated intravascular coagulopathy and intrauterine fetal death.

Key words: placental abruption, disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, intrauterine fetal death
