- A case of pedunculated intraperitoneal leiomyoma
We report a very rare case of a pedunculated intraperitoneal leiomyoma in the parietal peritoneum of the ventral abdominal wall. A 51-year-old female was admitted to our hospital because of a calcified mass detected on abdominal X-ray. CT scan and ultrasonography revealed a globular tumor with an irregular internal density in the peritoneal cavity. The parenchyma of the tumor appeared with patchy calcification and was well enhanced on contrast-enhanced CT scan. At surgery we resected a smooth-surfaced tumor of 50×30×30 mm in diameter, with a thin pedicle connected to the ventral peritoneal wall. The histological diagnosis was leiomyoma.
