This interesting case was 38 years age, presented with menorrhagia for few months only, had her last child birth 12 years ago by caeasarean delivery, her menstrual problem subsided with successful hysteroscopic removal of the bony chips. Although rare, the diagnosis is suspected on ultrasonography and can be managed easily with hysteroscopy which can visualize and simultaneously remove the bony spicules.
