Uterine inversion secondary to a pathological process of the myometrium is very rare. We report the case of a 48-year-old woman presenting with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) and mass like sensation in vaginal canal, in whom a study by MRI demonstrated a uterine inversion with submucosal pedunculated leiomyoma. She had undergone total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) and ovaries were preserved bilaterally.
