Rectus sheath hematoma (RSH) is a rare but potentially life threatening complication of caesarean delivery. The non specific nature of entity, lower incidence of disorder and acute presentation may posses’ difficulty in timely recognizing this. Our patient presented as acute abdominal pain 38 hours post caesarean section. This is an attempt to increase the awareness of this rare but potentially grave condition, as timely diagnosis & fast intervention saved our patient.
