Abstract

Leiomyomas are the commonest uterine and pelvic tumours. The usual anatomical location is the body of the uterus. Cervical leiomyomas are uncommon and presentation as a huge abdominal mass is rare. We report a case of a 45-year old female who presented with abdominal distension and weight loss for one year. Abdominal examination revealed a huge mass of 40 week size pregnant uterus filling the whole abdomen with restricted mobility, non tender and solid consistency mimicking an ovarian tumour. On ultrasound this was a solid mass with a cystic component. There was a large cervical fibroid visualized on laparotomy which was successfully removed. Histopathological examination showed a cervical fibroid with hyaline and cystic degeneration. The patient had an uneventful postoperative recovery.
