    ABSTRACT: Purpose: Cavernous haemangiomas of the uterine cervix are very rare and usually harmless. It is a benign tumor that may cause gynecological obstetrical complications. Although it is a benign condition but it can have serious consequences for the mother as well as for the baby. The treatment is often surgical and diagnosis is histological. Methods and Result: we reported a case of cavernous haemangioma of the cervix in a 25-year old multiparous patient, referred to our Centre in the 33 - 34 gestational weeks for premature labor with membranes rupture. A 3 cm × 6 cm soft regular purplish red mass is found in the uterine cervix. Tocolosys, prophylactic antibiotic therapy and corticotherapy for fetus pulmonary maturation were then decided after elimination of chorioamniotite signs. Caesarean has been made during labor, a week later, for tumor previa. The tumor excision has been made through the vagina after fetus extraction. The histological examination confirmed diagnosis of the cavernous haemangioma. Discussion: Further to this observation, the clinical, histological and therapeutic characteristics of the cavernous haemangioma unusual presentation were drawn up and literature enriched since this pathology is rare. Most previous reports in the literature consist of singlecase histories, and the experience of individual institutions is limited. The patients dramatically present dilemmas in the disease management. This can result in uncontrolled bleeding especially during operative delivery and may require hysterectomy. To avoid unexpected bleeding from haemangioma, patients should be repeatedly examined for haemangioma of the birth canal, and special care should be taken in choosing the delivery mode.
