Spontaneous Uterine Leiomyoma Torsion: A Challenging Differential Diagnosis for Radiologists
KeywordsUterine leiomyoma, complication, torsion, diagnostic imaging
Uterine leiomyomas are very common gynaecological benign tumours. Spontaneous torsion of a uterine subserosal leiomyoma is a rare cause of acute lower abdominal pain and should be treated immediately with surgery. We report a case of an enlarged subserosal leiomyoma that was first detected by computed tomography (CT) and further confirmed by laparoscopic surgery to be a subserosal leiomyoma with torsion.
