Abstract

A 51 year old woman presented for removal of her expired levonorgestrel intrauterine device (IUD). The IUD arms appeared absent upon IUD removal. Further examination of the device revealed that the arms were concealed inside the hormonal cylinder. Recognizing abnormal presentations of the levonorgestrel IUD upon removal can avoid unnecessary procedures.
