Ovarian Fibroid Mimicking as Subserosal Uterine Fibroid
Abstract: Ovarian leiomyomas are one of the rarest benign ovarian tumors accounting for approximately 0.5-1%. They often discover incidentally in routine physical examination or during surgery. Most of the patients are asymptomatic, or may present with abdominal pain or palpable mass. Herein, we reported a large ovarian leiomyoma in a 18-year-old girl with lower abdominal pain. Magnetic resonance imaging scan (MRI) revealed large adnexal mass. Microscopic appearance was typical for leiomyoma. Major differential diagnostic considerations are subserous leiomyomas or thecoma/fibroma.
