Abstract:

Despite the relatively common occurrence elsewhere, hemangiomas of the uterine cervix are extremely rare benign lesions. We present one such rare case in a 37 years old women who presented with menorrhagia. Per speculum examination revealed a cervical polyp. On microscopy, cervical polyp revealed a tumour composed of large dilated, irregular spaces filled with blood and lined by endothelial cells suggestive of haemangioma. Most of them are reported as asymtomatic incidental findings, but it may cause abnormal uterine bleeding which may sometimes be uncontrollable.
