Previous history of cesarean section is not a contraindication for the usage of misoprostol with the aim of termination of pregnancy. However, caution is required due to the higher risk of uterine rupture regardless of gestational age. We report a case of uterine rupture with the use of misoprostol for second trimester pregnancy termination due to fetal cardiac anomaly in a patient with a prior cesarean delivery.
