DOI : 10.31067/0.2020.243 Endometrial polyps may be detected by transvaginal ultrasonography (TVS) in early pregnancy. These pregnancies may end with fetal demise. There are not enough data in literature defining term labor in pregnancy with endometrial polyp. The current case describes in detail, the progress of a pregnancy with endometrial polyp including fetal growth, regression of polyp, assessment of placental pathology and postpartum follow-up. Giant endometrial polyp protruding into the uterine cavity adjacent to the gestational sac was detected by TVS in a 31 year-old-primigravida. She delivered a healthy baby and the polyp regressed completely by the end of the pregnancy. Polyps detected in early pregnancy may regress without any effect on the fetal demise or placental insufficiency. Close antenatal follow-up is advised for the prognosis of these pregnancies.
