Abstract

Round ligament leiomyoma are very rare benign tumors. They can appear on the extraperitoneal part of the round ligament (more common) or on the intraperitoneal round ligament (very rare). We present a case of 48-year-old women diagnosed with a large (122/108/98 mm) intraperitoneal leiomyoma of the left round ligament that was managed by laparoscopy. Laparoscopy proved to be a highly useful method, overcoming the limitation of ultrasound or CT and providing a safe and minimally invasive treatment method.
