Fibroids are an extremely common benign neoplasm of uterine smooth muscle but fibroids originating in cervix are uncommon (1% of all fibroids). Huge cervical fibroids pose operative challenge in both hysterectomy and myomectomy. We report two cases with a 24-week-sized central cervical fibroid with uterus sitting atop, i.e., lantern on the St. Paul's Cathedral appearance. The younger patient desirous of future childbearing underwent open cervical myomectomy followed by uterine cervix reconstruction and the postmenopausal women underwent hysterectomy.
