Background: The objective of reporting herein a case of uterocervical prolapse during pregnancy is to remind obstetricians of the complications and management of this problem during pregnancy.
Case Report: A case of uterine prolapse is reported in a 31-year-old woman, gravida 3 para 2, which developed uterocervical prolapse during the third trimester of pregnancy. This case was managed conservatively and the patient had a normal delivery at term of a 3650 g male infant without fetal or maternal complications. Postnatally, the uterocervical prolapse recovered spontaneously.
Conclusions: The diagnosis of uterine prolapse during pregnancy is very rare and frequent follow-up is necessary in order to prevent maternal and fetal complications. The successful management of the pregnancy should be individualized, but bed rest should be suggested in all pregnancies. Obstetricians should be familiar with this situation in pregnancy.
