Benign leiomyoma with hydropic features


Surgery: The patient received urgent total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.  Histology was sent.

Cervix, right pelvic sidewall, endometrium and left fallopian tube were within normal limits.
The large mass arising from the uterus demonstrated features of benign leiomyoma with hydropic features.

Final diagnosis: Benign leiomyoma with hydropic features.

Discussion: This case demonstrates an unusual presentation of a fibroid. It was very large and showed cystic features. Hydropic features on microscopy are very rare with scant correlative imaging features described in the literature.
