Abstract

Broad ligament is a very rare site for presentation of leiomyoma. False broad ligament leiomyoma may be pedunculated or sessile and hence, clinical presentation may vary. The radiological diagnosis is difficult and often reported as fibroid uterus or tubo-ovarian mass.1,2 We report a rare case of sessile leiomyoma of broad ligament who presented with complaints of increased frequency of micturition and lower abdominal pain. Radiological examination suggested multiple uterine fibroids. A preoperative diagnosis of uterine leiomyoma was made. At the time of surgery, a left sided large sessile broad ligament fibroid was seen, displacing the uterus superiorly and to the opposite side. We present this case on account of its rarity and also because of the diagnostic and surgical difficulties encountered.
