Abstract

We present a case of postpartum women who collapsed immediately after delivery with probable diagnosis of amniotic fluid embolism. This is a rare but fatal condition and was managed with supportive measures. Suspicion of amniotic fluid embolism should be considered in any postpartum collapse if no obvious cause is known.
