Abstract: The rotation of the gravid uterus is a normal finding in the third trimester of pregnancy. However, it is considered to be a pathological condition at greater than 45 degrees rotation along the long axis and is rarely seen in obstetrical practice. A 31-year-old primigravida primiparous at 39 weeks’ gestation with a singleton pregnancy obtained by intrauterine insemination underwent cesarean section for transverse fetal presentation. During laparotomy, uterine torsion of 100 degrees and an abnormal implantation of the uterine adnexa was diagnosed. Torsion was partly corrected intraoperatively and a transverse anterior corporeal incision was performed. Tha patient recovered and was discharged home with her baby on the third postoperative day. Uterine torsion, although an infrequently reported condition, it is a potentially dangerous complication of pregnancy. Prompt recognition and management of this pathology is necessary for better maternal and foetal outcome.
