A nonpuerperal uterine inversion is a rare occurrence clinically. It is usually associated with uterine fibroids or tumors. We report a case of 47 years old nulliparous women who presented with sudden onset of severe abdominal pain and heavy vaginal bleeding. Speculum examination revealed a 6 cm bleeding mass presenting in the vagina. The case was managed by performing hysterectomy using combined laparoscopic and vaginal routes.
