Vaginal evisceration represents the extreme outcome of intestinal prolapse following iatrogenic uterine perforation. It is a rare occurrence and considered a surgical emergency with a mortality rate of 6%. The whole track is rarely seen in abdominal ultrasound. Ultrasound is the least expensive, easily available imaging tool, which may clearly show the track of perforation. Timely detection prevents deadly sequelae.
