Fibroids are common benign tumours which arise from the uterine myometrium or less commonly from the cervix. About 95% of fibroids occur in the body of the uterus and less than 5% occurs in the cervix. Cervical fibroids polyps are relatively uncommon; however, they give rise to the greatest surgical difficulty due to relative inaccessibility and the close proximity to the bladder and ureters. This case report aims at expounding the plan of action carried out in the management of cervical fibroid polyp of a patient that was presented to Abia State University Teaching Hospital Aba, Nigeria. Here, a case of 41-years old female was presented with 16 weeks irregular vaginal bleeding. Pelvic examination revealed cervical fibroid polyp of about 4 cm by 3.5 cm, which easily descends into the vaginal with its stalks on the endocervix. Treatment was vaginal myomectomy. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of cervical fibroid.
