A patient with one previous term delivery presented with spontaneous uterine perforation due to choriocarcinoma (CC), requiring emergency hysterectomy due to hemoperitoneum. This tumor appears to follow a more aggressive course with extensive metastatic spread. The CC presenting as a spontaneous uterine perforation with intraabdominal hemorrhage is an extremely rare and life-threatening condition. It should be considered in the differential diagnoses of patients in the reproductive phase with a history of recent pregnancy having acute abdomen with hemoperitoneum. Early diagnosis and aggressive chemotherapy is important for patient survival. The patient should be closely followed up for a better outcome.
