dc.description.abstract Objective: Osseous metaplasia is a rare pathological entity that affects the uterus and usually appears following abortion, chronic endometritis, metabolic disorders or following LEEP excision of the cervix. Case: Herein, we present the occurrence of osseous metaplasia in a 27-year-old patient with a history of an abortion 2 years ago and suffering infertility. Conclusion: We suggest that the infertility in this patient may be caused by calcification and ossification of fetal tissue retained in the uterus after abortion. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.
