The specimen is a uterus cut slightly off centre so that the cervical canal cannot be clearly seen;
the uterus is enlarged and shows a sutured incision from a classical Caesarian section; the cavity
is largely filled by blood clot and placental debris.
This woman presented near term with antepartum haemorrhage from placenta praevia.
Caesarian section was followed by postpartum haemorrhage and the uterus was removed.
