SE Adaji, SO Shittu, BR Ageda

Abstract


Complications from uterine myomas in pregnancy could occur antenally, intrapartum or in the puerperium. One of such was diagnosed in a 36-year old para 2+0 who had successful gestation to term delivery in co-existence with a huge fibroid polyp and had spontaneous vaginal delivery of a life baby. She however developed severe primary postpartum haemorrhage prompting emergency postpartum digital vaginal myomectomy which was very helpful.
