Abstract: Parasitic myoma (PM) is a rare disease in which multiple leiomyomas are intraperitoneally formed. Recently, an increasing number of cases due to specimen morcellation during minimally invasive surgery has been reported. We present the first case of a PM identified intraoperatively during laparoscopic hysterectomy. A 40-year-old Japanese multiparous woman presented to our hospital with heavy menstrual bleeding. She had no history of previous surgery. Magnetic resonance imaging showed uterine myomas. As the patient did not wish for further pregnancy, she underwent oral gonadotropin-releasing hormone antagonist therapy followed by a total laparoscopic hysterectomy. Intraoperatively, we identified a thumb-sized tumor on the left side of the peritoneum. Histopathological examination showed evidence of benign leiomyoma.
