Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 27-year-old pregnant woman suffering from cavernous haemangioma of the uterine cervix. The patient had a large mass of nearly 8 cm in diameter, extending from the posterior lip of the uterine cervix, which was diagnosed to be a cervical fibroid. The mass was finally diagnosed as cavernous haemangioma of the uterine cervix. Ultrasound (US) of the abdomen revealed an intrauterine live foetus of 34 weeks gestation.
