Abstract

The prevalence of clinically symptomatic cervical leiomyomas in pregnancy is lower than 0.1%. Surgical intervention is necessary in extremely rare cases and only few are described in the literature. This study presents a case of successful vaginal myomectomy in the 13th week of pregnancy followed by a delivery of a healthy neonate in term by cesarean section.
