Abstract

We report a case in which an intramural uterine leiomyoma was transvaginally expelled after uterine arterial embolization (UAE). A 29-year-old unmarried female presented with vaginal bleeding, and at pre-treatment MRI an intramural leiomyoma was diagnosed. UAE was performed and after 13 days the tumor was transvaginally expelled. Follow-up MRI performed seven days later depicted a large myometrial defect in the anterior uterine wall; subsequent follow-up MRI showed that the defect became gradually smaller, and the size and configuration of the uterus progressively normalized.
