NE is a 36yr old petty trader who has had four previous caesarean sections. She went for her routine abdominal ultrasonography at 36weeks of her fifth pregnancy and an incidental posterior bladder polypoid mass was found with a normal singleton fetus. Patient declined cystoscopy but accepted exploration of bladder at same time with a caesarean section.  At Surgery, a polyp was found arising from the lower uterine segment traversing the thin posterior bladder wall into the bladder. The polyp was carefully dissected out and separated from bladder. Bladder and uterus were repaired, and patient had uneventful recovery.
