  • Caesarean myomectomy is a controversial and, sometimes, a challenging procedure. A 35-year-old pregnant woman with a previous caesarean section had two large fibroids of the uterine walls. Caesarean myomectomy was carried out after extraction of the foetus, born in good health. The outcome of the operation was uneventful. The postoperative course was regular; the puerpera did not need any transfusion and was discharged in satisfactory clinical condition.
