Adult inversion of uterus is very uncommon, more so when it is not associated with puerperium or third stage of labor. Inversion of the uterus is an unusual entity [1-6] and may be classified as puerperal/obstetric and non-puerperal/gynecologic inversion [7]. The rarest among this rare entity is a non-puerperal uterine inversion. Non-puerperal uterine inversion is often chronic, although DAS has reported 8.6% of the inversion as sudden [8]. This is a rare case with no published figures available regarding its incidence and only 101 cases reported from 1940 to till date. In this case report, a rare case of chronic uterine inversion associated with ovarian tumor in a 35 years old woman and its successful outcome after surgery is presented.
