Background: Endocervical microglandular hyperplasia is known as benign proliferation of endocervical glands. Florid form may be mistaken for adenocarcinoma. The patient is a 27-year old female referring when she was during her 37th week of pregnancy complaining of decreased movements of her fetus. In vaginal examination a big polypoid and fragile mass was obvious in cervix. The pathological report of the mass was adenocarcinoma. The patient refused further treatment. She safely delivered and consulted her physician 40 days after delivery. In vaginal examination, cervix was completely normal with no mass. Colposcopy and several biopsies from different points of cervix were performed and all reports were endocervical microglandular hyperplasia. She has been followed for 2 years after her delivery and fortunately she has no problem until now.
