Introduction: Uterine inversion though rare is mainly seen in post-partum period. This paper documents a case of non-puerperal uterine inversion due to leiomyoma. Case presentation: We here in presents an unusual case of non-puerperal uterine inversion due to leiomyoma. A 62-year-old woman, G4P4004, with past history of a polymyomatous uterus presented polymorphous large mass bleeding at contact and coming out of the cervix. Management was surgical. The technique used consisted of an incision on the stricture but we could also proceed by a section of the exterior part and remove the rest by the abdominal approach. The post operatory period was normal. Conclusion: Uterine inversion is a rare pathology but can frequently be a consequence of gynaecological problem like intracavity leimyoma. The diagnosis is clinic and the treatment is surgical.
