Further comments on the paper

Comments: Uterus rupture is a rare but serious pregnancy complication that can be life-threatening to both mother and fetus. This case report and review of the literature aims to represent a case of spontaneous uterus rupture in an unscarred uterus as well as to conduct a systematic review of literature to identify risk factors and symptoms related to this condition and providing useful information regarding diagnosis of uterus rupture. The study holds significance as due to the rare nature of these events, very few studies have been done and the exact cause of rupture in the absence of uterine scar is unclear, while the impact is very severe.
