Non-puerperal uterine inversion is an extremely rare gynecological event. Vast majority of non-puerperal inversions occur in association with uterine tumors, mainly with fundal leiomyomata. Various possible complications and management of the condition are discussed. Cases of uterine inversion, particularly neglected ones, need an adequate surgical treatment and a skilled surgeon. This paper presents an unusual case of a non-puerperal inversion of the uterus caused by chronic elevated intraabdominal pressure due to liver cirrhosis and ascites. Upon review of the literature no such complication has ever been reported so far.
