In women of reproductive age, the prevalence of fibroids is between 30 and 40 percent. Approx 20% of women with fibroid develop complications in pregnancy. Pregnancy-related uterine fibroids can cause many adverse effects including abdominal pain (due to degenerative changes, and torsion), preterm labor, antepartum and postpartum hemorrhage. Here we describe the case of 32-years-old nullipara woman with pregnancy at 36 weeks with large intramural fibroid with uterine torsion. The patient underwent an emergency cesarean along with a cesarean myomectomy and was discharged from the hospital in satisfactory condition.
