  • Uterine fibroid is an estrogen-dependent mass growing during pregnancy. Caesarean myomectomy (CM) is a controversial procedure. A 35-year-old obese (106 Kg) patient gravida 2 para1 (caesarean section), undergoing caesarean section, had two myomas occupying the whole uterine fundus (104.2 mm and 50 mm respectively). Intracesarean myomectomy was carried out after extraction foetus (Apgar score: 9/10). Postoperative course was uneventful and patient was discharged after four days.
