Abstract

Leiomyoma or fibroids arise from monoclonal proliferation or numerous copies of the same or very few cells [1] and are stimulated by estrogen and progesterone. They increase their growth rate during pregnancy and regress after menopause. They vary widely in size from a few millimeters to large masses filling the entire abdomen.
