Dr. Lalit Kumar, Dr. Pooja Agarwal, Dr. Nupur Kaushik

Abstract


Leiomyomas are the most common uterine tumor and usually affect women in their fourth and fifth decades.  Variant forms account for approximately 10% of cases.  Incidence is 4% in women who are below 30 years of age and very rarely seen below the age of 18 years.  They tend to regress after menopause.  In contrast to the uterine corpus, cervical leiomyoma are very uncommon; their frequency has been estimated to be 0.6% in hysterectomy specimens.  Cervical leiomyoma constitute 1-2% of the total leiomyoma cases.  We received partially cut total hysterectomy specimen of a 40 year female who had presented with bleeding per vaginum for 3 months.  Grossly and microscopically both the uterus and cervix revealed leiomyoma.
