Case Study
Cavernous hemangioma of the uterus may be either localized presenting as an endometrial polyp or a uterine mass mimicking myoma, or as a diffuse mass in which most of the uterine wall is composed of enlarged vascular spaces replacing the normal myometrium. It is usually asymptomatic, but can present with menometrorrhagia and infertility in gynecological practice, and intra or postpartum bleeding or thromboembolism in obstetric patients. Diffuse cavernous hemangioma can be seldom, identified during routine antenatal ultrasonographic examination as the thickened uterine wall composed of cavernous fluid-filled spaces with turbulent flow. We present an antenatally diagnosed case of diffuse cavernous hemangioma in which the fetus was severely growth-restricted. Caesarean section was performed successfully without any intra or postpartum hemorrhage.
