Abstract


Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) is a rare, usually benign disease primarily affecting premenopausal women. It is signalized by multiple smooth muscle nodules which grossly or radiologically may simulate peritoneal carcinomatosis or disseminated intraabdominal malignancies. A case study of 45 year female who presented with DPL after 8 years of hysterectomy is reported here.
