Spontaneous nonpuerperal uterine inversion is an exceedingly rare gynecological event. When it occurs, it is often due to an intrauterine polypoid mass attached to the uterine fundus, eventually pulling the uterus inside out over time as the mass increases in size. We present a case of nonpuerperal uterine inversion in a 32-year-old female who presented with heavy vaginal bleeding and vaginal protrusion of a fleshy mass. A clinical diagnosis of chronic uterine inversion due to a pedunculated submucous fibroid was made and was surgically managed with a vaginal myomectomy combined with an exploratory laparotomy and surgical reduction under general anesthesia. Good clinical acumen and surgical skills are invaluable for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of nonpuerperal uterine inversion.
