Fibroids are benign tumors of the uterine myometrium that often affect childbearing women and are the
most common solid benign uterine neoplasms. They are also called leiomyomas or myomas. Other than
uterus, there are other unusual sites where fibroids are found. These unusual patterns include disseminated
peritoneal leiomyomatosis, metastasizing leiomyoma, intravenous leiomyomatosis, parasitic leiomyoma
and retroperitoneal lesions. Extrauterine fibroids are extremely rare and are commonly associated with
previous morcellated hysterectomies or myomectomies. If all fragments are not removed, they may
parasitize hematogenously and present as abdominal or pelvic masses. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) issued a press release in 2014 discouraging the use of power morcellators. We present a case of a
patient who had past history of morcellation therapy for myomectomy and presented with large abdominal
and pelvic masses which were increasing in size.
