Abstract

Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign uterine tumor. They may be subserosal, intramural, or submucosal in location within the uterus or located in the cervix, in the broad ligament, or on a pedicle. But leiomyoma of the round ligament of the uterus is a rare condition occurring predominantly in premenopausal middle-age women, which is usually single and unilateral. In 50% of patients, they are associated with similar lesion of the uterus. Recently we have experienced a case of large cystic myxoid leiomyoma of the round ligament of the uterus misdiagnosed as an ovarian tumor in 32 year-old multiparous woman. We report this case with a brief review of literatures.
