Cervical varix is a rare cause of obstetric hemorrhage which needs accurate diagnosis and prompt management because the lesion may be associated with preterm delivery and maternal complications. Our patient was diagnosed with cervical varix and vaginal bleeding at 32 weeks' gestation, using transvaginal ultrasound and MRI. Persistent vaginal bleeding and preterm labor led to an emergency cesarean section at 33 weeks'gestation. After delivery, cervical varix was spontaneously resolved in the follow-up transvaginal ultrasound and CT. We report various radiologic features of cervical varix combined with vaginal bleeding in late pregnancy.
