We present a case of extreme cervical elongation with a cervix of 12 cm after an unusual operation in which the uterine corpus was directly fixed to the promontory, and which became symptomatic after 8 years. The possible pathophysiology of cervical elongation is discussed. Diagnosing a case of severe cervical elongation can be important in the pre-operative evaluation. It can alter the operative plan to a uterus-sparing technique or it can alert the surgeon to a difficult entry in the abdominal cavity during vaginal hysterectomy.
