The article describes the case of a 30-year-old woman presented with shock and abdominal-wall necrosis after a cesarean section. The patient had undergone cesarean section at 36.4 weeks gestation due to suspected chorioamnionitis, fetal tachycardia and a prolonged deceleration on a fetal heart-rate tracing during labor augmented by oxytocin. Her medications on admission included prenatal vitamins, iron and acetaminophen. Details of the results of her laboratory tests are discussed.
