Abstract

Objective: To describe a case of uterine pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic myomectomy in a 36-year-old woman. Design: Case report. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): A 36-year-old woman, 3 months after laparoscopic myomectomy, presenting with an intrauterine hypoechoic lesion measuring 5 cm in diameter. Intervention(s): Uterine pseudoaneurysm was diagnosed by color Doppler ultrasound. Main Outcome Measure(s): Complete resolution of the pseudoaneurysm. Result(s): Spontaneous thrombosis was observed in the pseudoaneurysm. At 6-month follow-up, the uterus appeared normal. Conclusion(s): Our case presents the possibility of delayed occurrence of uterine pseudoaneurysm after laparoscopic myomectomy.
