Nonpuerperal uterine inversion due to submucous leiomyoma
AbstractUterine inversion is a rare complication of the postpartum period and an even rarer complication of the nonpuerperal period. A 47-yearold woman, gravid 2, para 2, was referred to our hospital with blood-stained leucorrhoea and severe anemia. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans showed a U-shaped uterine cavity and the pedicles of a tumor attached to the uterine fundi. The patient underwent an abdominal hysterectomy. The diagnosis of uterine inversion was confirmed during the operation. MRI should be performed for the diagnosis of this rare disease.
