ABSTRACTNon-puerperal uterine inversion is extremely rare. We report a case associated with leiomyoma. It is presented the case of a multiparous of 46 year-old for presenting severe vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain and strange body vaginal sensation. The diagnosis was uterine myoma in abortive phase. An abdominal hysterectomy was performed to find a complete uterine inversion. This report represents an anecdotal case of non-puerperal uterine inversion successfully treated surgically.
