Chronic nonpuerperal uterine
inversion and necrosis: a case report
Inversion of the non-pregnant
uterus is rare.
A 56-year-old African American
woman presented to our emergency center with complaints of a mass protruding
from her vagina. She subsequently underwent vaginal myomectomy, abdominal
hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Pathologic examination
revealed a necrotic fibroid and endometrium. At the time of laparotomy an
inverted uterus was diagnosed when a 3 cm dimple containing bilateral round
ligaments, infundibulopelvic ligaments and bladder was observed.
Chronic nonpuerperal inversion of
the uterus is rare. Infection should be suspected and appropriate broad
spectrum antibiotics begun while planning surgery. An attempt at vaginal
restoration and removal is difficult. Abdominal hysterectomy may be necessary
taking care to locate the distal urinary collecting system.
