Leiomyomas are the most common benign tumour of uterus and affect 5-20% of females. Approximately 5% of leiomyomas are of submucous types. Usually they are asymptomatic. Symptomatic leiomyomas are managed with either medical therapy or surgical management in the form of myomectomy or hysterectomy. We are reporting an interesting and rare case of a large submucous fibroid which was spontaneously expelled per vaginally during clinical examination.
