Cartilaginous metaplasia in uterine cavity is a known entity, but such a presence is extremely rare in the endocervical polyps. The importance lies in differentiating it from mixed mesodermal tumour and retained foetal parts by taking a detailed history and thorough histopathological examination. We hereby present a case of a 31-year-old female presenting with bleeding per vaginum for 1 year who was then operated for polypectomy and on histopathological examination revealed areas of cartilaginous differentiation. Only two cases of such type have been reported in the literature to the best of our knowledge.
