Case Discussion

The uterus is largely replaced by multiple innumerable varying size and well demarcated low T2 SI lesions that show enhancement on T1 post Gad sequences, that is somewhat more heterogeneous in the large lesions. These lesion represents uterine leiomyomas (fibroids), which are intramural in the majority of the lesions, except for one small subserosal and another submucosal lesion. Since the lesions are enhancing, this reflect expected favorable response to UAE if conducted.
