Nonpuerperal inversion of uterus secondary to leiomyoma in menopause: a rare case report

Kalarani E., Amudha P., Rubini M., Karthika Devi A.


Inversion of uterus is a rare clinical condition if not associated with third stage of labor or puerperium. Non-puerperal uterine inversion usually occurs secondary to tumor arising from the fundus of uterus. We report an unusual case of non-puerperal uterine inversion caused by large submucous fibroid in a 65 year old postmenopausal woman which was managed by combined abdomino-perineal approach.
