An extremely large endocervical fibroid polyp masquerading as uterine procidentia in a young low parity woman is reported. Lesions of this size and complexity are uncommon. However, after careful evaluation, simple polypectomy was possible and proved curative. Good anatomical and clinical judgment is critical to successful management of bizarre introital pathologies. The literature on this subject is briefly reviewed.
