You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 33 year old lady presents in active labor, at the 38th week of her third pregnancy. A recent ultrasound scan showed a fundal placenta and a cephalic presentation.
Two years ago, she underwent a lower segment cesarean section during her second pregnancy, due to a breech presentation.
Suddenly, she begins to complain of severe abdominal pain, which persists between contractions.
