Huge (9 Kg) broad ligament fibroid mimicking sarcoma of uter
The present case has been reported in the Journal of Mid-life Health.

Fibroids are most common benign tumors of the uterus, mostly situated in the body of the uterus. Rarely, they arise from extrauterine sites with broad ligament fibroids being uncommon.

The authors present a case of a 47-year-old female, multipara who presented with a history of sudden development of dysuria 10 days back. Intraoperatively, uterus was pushed to side and large broad ligament fibroid of 25 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm seen arising from right-sided broad ligament.

The fibroid was densely adherent to bowel and bladder. Exploratory laparotomy with excision of broad ligament fibroid of 9 Kg with total abdominal hysterectomy with right salpingo-oophorectomy was done.

The frozen section report revealed benign broad ligament fibroid; the fibroid weighed of 9 Kg. Postoperatively, the patient was stable. Her histopathology report revealed broad ligament leiomyoma with chronic cervicitis with right simple ovarian cyst.

What sort of skin incision was given ! Is there a need of intra-op biopsy/ cytology in such mammoth tumours !
