Abstract
Tubal leiomyoma during pregnancy is rare. Fewer than 100 cases of leiomyoma of the fallopian tube have been described in the literature. Most of them are asymptomatic. The diagnosis is incidentally if there is a primary tubal lesion such as ectopic pregnancy or during the general gynecologic operation. The tube must be entirely sectioned and completely examined whether there is primary tubal adenocarcinoma, if rare. We experienced a case of tubal leiomyoma in woman at 38+5 weeks gestation with previous primary cesarean section diagnosed after repeat cesarean delivery and bilateral tubal ligation with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Tubal leiomyoma, Pregnancy
