Abstract

Inversion of the uterus is a rare clinical problem. It is encountered as an obstetric emergency and a diagnostic challenge in gynecology. Association of uterine inversion with malignancies such as endometrial carcinoma or sarcoma is even rarer. Accurate diagnosis is essential before treatment, so that appropriate management is offered. A history of uterine inversion and a review of literature is presented especially of its association with corpus malignancies. 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.
