Abstract

Endometrial polyps are most commonly seen in the postmenopausal women with uterine bleeding, although the giant polyps which originate from the uterine cavity and protruding from the cervical os are rare. Several cases which have been described in the literature are usually developed secondary to tamoxifen use, and the polyps do not extend or protrude from the external cervical os. Most of the polyps protruded from the cervical os can mimic a cervical neoplasia or endocervical polyp. We report the case of a giant endometrial polyp (8x4x3 cm in size) which was protruding from the external cervical os and that developed spontaneously without tamoxifen use in a multiparous 73 -year-old woman presenting with vaginal bleeding. Hysteroscopic polypectomy was performed and no recurrence was seen at 6 months after surgery. Diagnosis, management and outcome of this rare entity have been discussed according to the literature.
