Parasitic fibroid: a diagnostic dilemma

Tejaswini Kale (Pingle), Sanjaykumar Tambe, Yogita Alnur


Uterine leiomyomas are one of the most common tumours found in women of the reproductive age group. Parasitic or wandering leiomyomas are very rare extra-uterine benign tumours. Due to its rarity, atypical clinical presentation and unusual location, these tumours give big challenge to clinicians to reach correct diagnosis preoperatively. Therefore, having clinical suspicion and asking about previous surgical history (especially myomectomy or morcellation) are of utmost importance in making diagnosis. We present an interesting case report where primary parasitic fibroid was mimicking like an ovarian tumour on clinical examination, turned out to be subserous fibroid on ultrasonography and finally diagnosed as parasitic fibroid in the operation table.
