Author(s): Agnieszka Bąk, Jacek Kampa, Agnieszka Mitka, Łukasz Noras

Vaginal evisceration is a very rare gynecological complication, occurring most often after hysterectomy. The article presents a case of evisceration through the vaginal apex in a 61-year old female patient 5 months after vaginal hysterectomy. Repair surgery and resection of a necrotic fragment of the small intestine was performed with success via the laparotomic access.
