Vasa previa is an uncommon condition which is defined when the fetal blood vessels traverse the lower uterine segment beneath the presenting part of the fetus with neither the support of the umbilical cord nor the placenta. The present manuscript describes a case of vasa previa which has been diagnosed by the palpation of amniotic membrane during active labor. Therefore, this case report aims to emphasize the clinical significance of vasa previa which increases perinatal morbidity and mortality due to the compression or destruction of fetal blood vessels within the umbilical cord.
