How should painful cystic degeneration of myomas be managed during pregnancy? a case report and review of the literature|
Kim, Tae-Hee & Lee, Hae-Hyeog
Background: Uterine myomas are common pelvic masses during pregnancy. The pain and rapid growth of myomas are among the most common complications during pregnancy. We evaluate management of painful cystic degeneration of myomas during pregnancy.
Case: A 27-year-old primigravida had a pelvic mass. We have managed a case in which the diagnosis of cystic degeneration of uterine myomas could not be easily differentiated from an ovarian torsion or carcinoma. Differentiation between degenerative pain of the myoma and an ovarian malignancy or torsion was necessary. A complete aspiration of the cystic changes of the uterine myoma was performed without performing a myomectomy.
Conclusion: We report a good result of aspiration of a cystic uterine myoma during pregnancy with a review of the literature published for twenty years since 1 January 1988.
