Recently. with advancement in laparoscopic techniques including the use of power morcellation, there has been an increase reported cases of extra uterine myomas. Disseminated peritoneal leiomyomatosis (DPL) or leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata is a rare condition, which is characterized by benign smooth muscle cells proliferation in the peritoneal cavity. This is a case of incidental intra operative DPL with synchronous recurrent uterine leiomyomas 6 years post uncontained laparoscopic myomectomy and morcellation.
