An unusual case of non-puerperal uterine inversion is presented. The patient, a 37 year old multipara who had been earlier diagnosed with uterine fibroids, subsequently developed a protrusion from the vagina having declined surgery. The mass had become necrotic and infected at the time of presentation. Uterine inversion was diagnosed clinically and further confirmed at surgery where a vaginal hysterectomy was carried out. Uterine inversion is a rare condition not encountered by most gynaecologists. Diagnosis and treatment could thus be challenging. The literature on non-puerperal uterine inversion regarding the evaluation and management is reviewed.
