Abstract

Complete non-puerperial uterine inversion is rare and when present is usually associated with a prolapsed submucous fibroid. The inversion in this case was associated with a uterine sarcoma in an 88 year old diabetic patient, gravida 13, who presented with a four month history of intermittent vaginal bleeding. She was successfully managed with a total abdominal hysterectomy and some of the difficulties with diagnosis and management are highlighted.
