Abstract

Leiomyoma is considered as the commonest benign tumor of the genital tract. This case represents a young unmarried lady who presented with a history of progressive abdominal distension for 6 months. On examination, a mobile, centrally located intra-abdominal mass was found. At laparotomy a parasitic fibroid deriving blood supply from greater omentum was seen. Resection of the mass was performed after ligating large worm like emerging blood vessels. The patient had an uneventful post-operative recovery. Histopathology revealed hyalinized leiomyoma.
