OBJECTIVE.: Uterine prolapse with giant cervical polyp is a rare combination. Although uterine prolapse is common among elderly and menopausal women, giant cervical polyps are commonly encountered in young reproductive-age adults. CASE PRESENTATION.: A 55-year-old, para 7, Tanzanian woman, 7 months postmenopausal, presented with history of a protruding vaginal mass for 3 months. She also had a third-degree uterine prolapse with the cervix beyond the hymen and a huge, ulcerated, round mass on the anterior lip of the cervix. The mass had a large stalk, bled easily on touch, and measured approximately 6 × 6 cm in its largest diameter. The external cervical os and posterior cervical lip were identified and appeared normal. Transvaginal hysterectomy was performed with unremarkable recovery. CONCLUSIONS.: Giant cervical polyp associated with uterine prolapse, although rare, can occur in menopausal women. Transvaginal hysterectomy as was done in this patient may be all that is required in benign polyps.
