ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the case of a 40-year-old woman who has a history of gradually increasing abdominal distention and weight loss. Exploratory laparotomy showed a tumor filling the entire abdomen and growing from the uterine fundus. Histopathologic studies revealed a uterine myoma that showed areas of myxomatous degeneration, calcifications, and chondroid metaplasia. The possible complications before and after surgical treatment include thrombosis and respiratory failure.
