Spontaneous subserosal venous rupture overlying a uterine leiomyoma in a young woman



Spontaneous subserosal venous rupture overlying a uterine leiomyoma in a young woman



Pan African Medical Journal 28: 205



Uterine leiomyomas are very common tumors found in women. Rupture of veins on the surface of uterine leiomyoma is an unusual source of hemoperitoneum. It is an extremely uncommon gynaecological cause of hemoperitoneum. It is a life threatening emergency. We report a case of massive intraperitoneal hemorrhage due to rupture of vessels on the surface of subserous leiomyoma. A differential diagnosis of rupture of leiomyoma'ssurface vessel should be considered, while dealing with a case of hemoperitoneum with pelvic mass.
