ABSTRACT
Uterine leiomyomas are common benign neoplasms that develop from uterine muscle tissue, with an estimated incidence of 20%–40% in women of reproductive age. Power morcellators are commonly used during myomectomy, but if all fragments are not removed, they may find another blood supply and develop into abdominal masses. We present a case of disseminated peritoneal leiomyomas in a patient with a history of laparoscopic myomectomy using an Endo-bag.
Key words: Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis; Laparoscopic myomectomy; Morcellation
