Abstract

Ovarian leiomyoma is a rare and incidentally detected neoplasm. It is usually reported in women of childbearing age. Clinically most patients are asymptomatic. Histopathologic examination is required to distinguish it from subserous leiomyomas and fibroma-thecoma group of ovarian tumors. We present 2 cases of ovarian leiomyoma along with brief review of literature. The first case of a 25 year old woman who presented with primary infertility and history of irregular menstruation and the second case of a 54 year old post menopausal lady with complaints of abdominal pain who was referred with the clinical impression of ovarian malignancy.
