Abstract

Objective: Myomas are the most common uterine neoplasms. They usually have a characteristic appearance on ultrasound but the myomas that have undergone degeneration may have variable patterns. We are presenting a patient with the histologic diagnosis of uterine myoma with cystic degeneration, but preoperatively, we strongly suspected that the tumor was a primary ovarian tumor.
