Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: Nonpuerperal uterine inversion is a rare but serious condition which is often associated with polypoid benign or malignant tumors of the uterus. Timely diagnosis and intervention may prevent long-term sequelae. METHODS: This report presents an unusual case of nonpuerperal uterine inversion which was diagnosed 14 months after an uneventful vaginal delivery, the longest period of time reported in world literature. RESULTS: The patient was successfully treated for uterine inversion and was discharged home in good condition. CONCLUSION: Nonpuerperal uterine inversion can be successfully treated in a low-resource environment, but may require utilization of elements from several standard techniques before reversion is accomplished.
