Abstract

Introduction

A parasitic leiomyoma is considered an extremely rare variant of extra uterine leiomyoma. It presents as a peritoneal pelvic benign smooth muscle mass separate from the uterus.

 

We report a case of a 36-year-old female who presented with generalized abdominal pain and was found to have a parasitic fibroid which may have occurred following laparoscopic myomectomy, and along with it a review on current literature of parasitic fibroids.

 

Parasitic leiomyoma presents with vague symptoms and the diagnosis is challenging. In prevention of this condition, various alternatives must be utilized when using electromechanical power morcellation for myomectomy.
