A 37-year-old woman, gravida 3, para 3, presented with complaints of pelvic pressure, heavy bleeding, and pain with menses. Symptoms were unresponsive to a levonorgestrel intrauterine system and uterine artery embolization. A large, globular uterus was noted on pelvic examination. Computed tomographic (CT) images demonstrated a massively enlarged leiomyomatous uterus extending into the abdomen at the base of the stomach (image A). The uterus measured 18 × 16 cm with a subserosal leiomyoma (11 × 10 cm) at the uterine fundus. The patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy. Gross examination of the leiomyomatous uterus revealed a 30-week gestational-sized uterus with multiple leiomyomas and a 10-week sized subserosal leiomyoma at the fundus (image B).
