Inversion of uterus is an important obstetric clinical issue. Aeutc inversion, a life threatening complication, is reported as frequently as 80% of such cases. Since chronic and subacute inversion is rarer type, here we report a case of chronic uterine inversion. A 32-year-old, multipara woman presented with irregular bleeding and lower abdominal pain for two weeks. Complete uterine inversion was diagnosed among various differentials due to unique examination features. Uneventful reversion of uterus was done with Haultain's surgical procedure. Uterine suspension was done concomitantly. Thus, clinician should suspect uterine inversion in cases with persistent bleeding even after considerable period following vaginal delivery.
