Target Audience: Obstetrics and Gynecologists, Family Physicians Learning Objectives: After completion of this article, the reader will be able to describe the conditions that are associated with uterine inversion, list the presenting signs and symptoms of a patient with this condition, and outline the differential diagnosis of nonpuerperal uterine inversion.
