A rare case of non-puerperal chronic uterine inversion secondary to sub mucous fibroid in a 38-year-old woman is presented. There was complete uterine inversion with the incarcerated inverted uterus protruding through the vvgina beyond the vulva. The sub mucous fibroid was attached to the fundus. At laparotomy, a dimple with a constriction ring was found in the position of the uterus. The distal ends of the fallopian tubes and part of the ovary were visible through the constriction ring. Histological examination of the uterus and fibroid following hysterectomy confirmed their benign nature.
