Large cervical fibroid: a rare case report

Sunanda N.


Although leiomyomas are the most common pelvic tumors presenting in the reproductive age group, cervical fibroids are rare accounting for 2% of all uterine fibroids. We report a case of 40 year old lady presenting with a firm, non-tender mass of 22-24 weeks size pregnant uterus with restricted mobility. Laparotomy showed a large mass arising from the anterior lip of cervix, with a small uterus pushed posteriorly. Enucleation followed by total abdominal hysterectomy was done. Large cervical fibroids are rare, presenting with surgical difficulties. Careful dissection by expert hands is needed in the management of such cases.
