Uterine leiomyomas are benign growths that represent the most common neoplasms of the uterus. Multiple myomas are common and usually cause diagnostic and therapeutic problems due to their size, clinical features, and degeneration. In this article, we present a multiple myoma case in a 25 years old woman who presented to the Ghalib hospital with heavy vaginal bleeding, long history of menstruation, anemia, history of massive blood transfusion, unknown abdominal mass, and dysmenorrhea, lower abdominal and pelvic pain from many years ago. These symptoms were exacerbated and the patient got much blood transfusion recently. Physical and radiological examination revealed the presence of multiple masses arising from the uterus. Laparotomy and hysterectomy were achieved and the uterus and multiple myomas measuring 4.2 kg were extracted. Histological examination showed leiomyoma with atypical degeneration. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful and she was discharged after 2 days and followed up after 2 months.
