Uterine fibroids are very common non-cancerous (benign) growths, occurring in 20% - 30% of women of reproductive age that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus. The sonographic diagnosis of uterine fibroids generally is accepted as accurate with transvaginal sonography. In women who have pelvic masses of unknown cause, unusual manifestations of fibroids such as necrosis or degeneration may simulate a carcinoma or hydrometra resulting in problems with image interpretation. We report a case of an unsuspected large degenerated uterine fibroid in a lady mistakenly diagnosed as didelphysbicolis uterus on ultra sonography.
