Introduction: The chronic non puerperal uterine inversion is a rare gynecological clinical condition which usually results from tumour arising from the fundus of the uterus.

Case Presentation: A 44- year- old lady presented with complaints of dysmenorrhea and menorrhagia for the last five years and foul smelling PV discharge and lower abdomen pain for 15 days. On laparotomy, huge submucosal fibroid from fundal region was seen and there was the typical appearance of uterine inversion, ie broad ligament, round ligament and other associated structures were stretched due to uterine inversion. Uterine reposition was tried but it was not possible.

Conclusion: Chronic nonpuerperal inversion of the uterus is rare. Infection should be suspected and appropriate broad spectrum antibiotics begun while planning surgery. An attempt at vaginal restoration and removal is difficult. Abdominal hysterectomy may be necessary while taking care of ureteric and bladder injury.
