Case Report

Hemangiomas of the uterine cervix are very rare and usually harmless. We report a case of cavernous hemangioma of the uterine cervix associated with multiple fibroids and discovered during histopathological examination of the hysterectomy specimen in a 30-year-old multiparous lady who presented with moderate to severe menstrual and postcoital bleeding. To the best of our knowledge, this entity has not been reported from the subcontinent previously.
