In 2011, a 40-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic myomectomy with intraabdominal morcellation. Histology report showed leiomyoma without atypia, necrosis, or mitosis.

Abstract

In 2011, a 40-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic myomectomy with intraabdominal morcellation. Histology report showed leiomyoma without atypia, necrosis, or mitosis. In 2016, she complained of left lower quadrant pain; ultrasound examination revealed a left hypogastric mass in the site of trocar placement. Percutaneous biopsy results showed a low-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma (LGESS). At laparoscopy, we observed: multiple nodules on uterine serosa, left annex, vesical peritoneum (Figure 1), Douglas pouch (Supplementary Video1), previous left pelvic trocar site (Figure 2), greater omentum (Figure 3), and right/left diaphragm.
