We present a rare case of a 23-year-old female with intraperitoneal hemorrhage from uterine rupture as an uncommon presentation of placental site trophoblastic tumor (PSTT) after spontaneous abortion. A high index of suspicion with this clinical presentation and the use of appropriate diagnostic tools to arrive at a diagnosis can go a long way in decreasing the adverse outcome of this disease. The histopathological findings and immunohistochemical staining were helpful armamentaria for the confirmation of PSTT. The patient was successfully managed with primary hysterectomy and postoperative chemotherapy.
