Abnormal Uterine Bleeding (AUB) is one of the most common gynecologic conditions. Cavernous hemangiomas of the uterine cervix are extremely rare lesions associated with AUB. A 26-year-old G2P2002 female presented to the office for workup of AUB. The patient described her menstrual cycles as extremely irregular and associated with severe dysmenorrhea and heavy bleeding. Previous work-up failed to reveal a source of the AUB. As the patient continued to have heavy, painful menses, she opted to undergo a Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy with Bilateral Salpingectomy (TLH BS). A TLH BS was performed under general anesthesia without complications with all specimens sent to pathology for further analysis. The surgical pathology report revealed a cavernous hemangioma of the cervix as the probable cause of the patient’s AUB. Although uncommon, cervical hemangiomas should be included in the differential diagnosis of patients with AUB.
