Resumo: The prevalence of leiomyoma during pregnancy is reported as approximately 2%. Although during pregnancy leiomyomas usually remain asymptomatic, they may complicate its course. The management of leiomyoma during pregnancy is medical, but in certain circumstances surgical intervention and myomectomy may be required. This 28-year-old primigravida presented with progressively worsening lower abdominal pain at 14 weeks gestational age. Ultrasonography demonstrated a large fundally sited multi lobulated fibroid extending up to the right hypochondrium. There was an intrauterine gestation compatible with her menstrual dates. Laparotomy confirmed a large leiomyoma showing benign degenerative changes. The operative procedure was successful, and the pregnancy progressed normally. She was admitted at 34 weeks gestation with a diagnosis of antepartum haemorrhage. She was managed conservatively in the ward until 37 completed weeks gestation when she had an elective caesarean section and delivered of a live male neonate with a birth weight of 2.7 kg. She had type III placenta praevia.
