Adenomyosis is a common benign gynaecological disorder. However, it may lead to life-threatening bleeding and complications. We report one such case in a 26-year-old woman who was complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, shock, and renal failure. She underwent emergency hysterectomy as a life-saving procedure.
