Successful Myomectomy in Early Pregnancy for a Large Asymptomatic Uterine Myoma: Case Report
Juhul Patel  | Sumana Manohar 
Abstract: The decision of myomectomy is not usually taken by OBG specialist for uterine fibroids during pregnancy because of its complications which become life threatening at times. This is why it is generally delayed until after delivery. The current case was a large, asymptomatic subserous uterine myoma of 17 cm diagnosed during pregnancy by ultrasound and successfully managed by antepartum myomectomy retaining the fetus alive in utero at 13 -14 weeks gestation. This case demonstrates that myomectomy during pregnancy in special circumstances in selected cases to prevent forthcoming events adversely affecting mother and fetus can be considered.
