This case is extraordinary because it was never before described in English literature. The case describes a rare pathological situation during labor that is usually overlooked and can cause severe morbidity and even mortality. The importance of this case is to emphasis that even though certain occurrences are rare, they might still happen and should be immediately addressed and dealt with.
