Abstract
Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is a rare condition characterized by multiple subperitoneal nodules of benign smooth muscle. Wilson and Peale were the first to describe the multiple peritoneal leiomyomas, while Taubert et al. clearly delineated the features of the lesion and named it LPD. Approximately 100 cases of this disease have been reported in the world literature. High levels of exogenous and endogenous female gonadal steroids is associated with LPD, it suggests that estrogen and progesterone play important role in the pathogenesis of LPD. We report a case of leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata with review of literature.
