A Rare Case of Submucosal Fibroid Presented With Acute Abdomen: A Case Report

Julia Tan, Mohamed Siraj

Abstract


Spontaneous bleeding from uterine leiomyoma is an unusual cause of hemoperitoneum. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported in the literature so far. We report a 30-year-old woman who needed surgical exploration for an acute abdomen. There was massive hemoperitoneum due to bleeding from a subserosal myoma. This case was important because physician should be aware of this rare complication in patient with uterine myoma to avoid any morbidity and mortality.
