Cavernous hemangiomatous polyp of uterus is a rare vascular malformation of the uterus. Common sites of malformation in uterine wall include serosa, myometrium, and endometrium and most common presentation is diffuse involvement of uterus. Patients usually present with obstetric and gynecological complications ranging from menorrhagia, intermenstrual bleeding, infertility, and pregnancy-associated complications which includes maternal and fetal demise due to excessive bleeding. Uterine hemangiomas occur at all age groups without preponderance in any decades and are classified into congenital and acquired. Congenital hemangiomas may be associated with hereditary diseases whereas acquired hemangiomas are thought to be associated with both physical changes and hormone alterations.
