Abstract

Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign tumors of the uterine smooth muscle. The latest FIGO classification, considering both their location and the degree of ingrowth into the uterine muscle, distinguishes eight classes of fibroids [1]. The location of leiomyomas in connection with their size may determine the characteristic symptoms: abdominal pain, pressure symptoms, difficulties in getting pregnant, recurrent miscarriages. Among the case reports there are also descriptions of the so-called parasitic leiomyomas [2]. The paper presents a case report of a parasitic leiomyoma in a young woman who has not been operated on in the abdominal or pelvic organs so far.
