A three year old crossbred cow in estrus was presented with history of dystocia before three months. The cow exhibited estrous twice without any vaginal discharges. Per-rectal examination revealed a fluid filled pouch like structure on floor of pelvic cavity with uterine horn present deep in abdominal cavity. Non- passage of fingers on per-vaginal examination confirmed adhesions of vaginal mucus. A blunt scissor was used carefully to separate adhesions without any damage to mucus membranes. The cervical mucus of both the succeeding estrus, so deposited in pouch like structure, was scooped out from vagina. Intrauterine and parenteral antibiotics along with Prednisolone and Serratiopeptidase lead to complete recovery and resumed normal estrus within three weeks.
