A 32 year old female, para 2 + 0 presented with a hard lump in the scar of a lower midline incision. She had had a myomectomy 2 years previously and subsequently noticed the lump 3 months later. Her only complaints were urinary frequency during menstruation and the suprapubic mass. Surgery was performed for what was initially thought to be a desmoid tumour. At surgery the uterus was found to be lying in the subcutaneous position with no peritoneal sac. The uterus was dissected free of the sheath and reduced into the pelvis, uneventfully. This rare occurrence of a subcutaneous non-gravid uterus in the absence of a hernial sac is reported and its clinical features and possible preventative measures are discussed.
