Abstract


A 25-year-old woman having an elective caesarean delivery for breech presentation, after a previous caesarean section for fetal distress, developed severe intra-operative haemorrhage from a large fundal sub-serosal leiomyoma with a ruptured false capsule. After the delivery of the baby and repair of the uterine incision, myomectomy was done to prevent further blood loss.


Key Words: Myomectomy, Caesarean Section, Haemorrhage
