Abstract

Giant uterine fibroids are those weighing > 25 lb (11.4 kg). Such a fibroid may appear as a solitary tumor or as a conglomerate mass of uterine fibroids presenting as a single uterine tumor. The challenge of these tumors lies in their proper surgical management. Combined preoperative and postoperative mortality is approximately 15%. The paucity of recent reports encountered in the literature of uterine fibroids of this magnitude reflects their rarity.
