Inversion of the uterus is a postpartum complication that is an obstetric emergency. This report describes a case of inversion of the uterus in which clinical evaluation was inconclusive, and magnetic resonance (MR) of the pelvis revealed findings virtually pathognomonic of incomplete inversion of the uterus with far greater conspicuity than on corresponding ultrasound. The MR findings directly resulted in earlier therapeutic intervention with a possible decrease in morbidity.
