Abstract

Uterine inversion is an unusual, rare entity in which the uterus descends in reverse direction exposing endometrial surface through
the cervix and classified as puerperal or obstetric and non-puerperal or gynecological inversion. Non-puerperal uterine inversion
is very rare and often clinically misdiagnosed by the clinician. Cervix remains drawn up thus making the vaginal part of cervix
difficult to palpate. Acute inversion usually occurs in the 3rd stage of the labor and is an obstetric emergency. Diagnosis is based on
the clinical and imaging techniques. We report a case of a postmenopausal non-puerperal uterine inversion secondary to submucous
fibroid and its successful management.
