Abstract

Uterine Sarcoma Presenting in the Setting of Non-puerperal Uterine Inversion with Uterine Prolapse

Puerperal uterine inversion occurs in approximately one out of every 30,000 vaginal deliveries. Non-puerperal uterine inversion is rare with no reliable estimate of frequency in the literature; it is almost always associated with a polypoid uterine tumor. Although the most common cause of non-puerperal uterine inversion is a leiomyoma, a high index of suspicion for a coexisting malignancy must be maintained. Herein, we present a case of a non-puerperal uterine inversion in the setting of a uterine sarcoma that was accompanied by complete prolapse of the uterus into the vagina.
