A Rare Presentation of Recurrent and Profuse Postmenopausal Bleeding

Shubham Divya, Kawthalkar Anjali


The commonest cause of postmenopausal bleeding in India is carcinoma cervix. Other common causes are senile vaginitis, carcinoma endometrium, endometrial polyp and fibroid uterus. Sex-cord stromal tumours of the ovary are rarely responsible for postmenopausal bleeding but non-hormone producing ovarian tumour leading to profuse postmenopausal bleeding is very rare. Ovarian fibroma is uncommon. Here we present a case of 60-year-old woman who presented with profuse and recurrent episodes of postmenopausal bleeding with simple endometrial hyperplasia without atypia with ovarian fibroma (A misfit tumour).
