Abstract

Myoma is rare in younger age group, so tends to be mistaken for adnexal tumour. A 19 year old  adolescent who was taken for laparotomy for ovarian germ cell tumour instead was found to have  uterus studded with innumerable myomas, which were surgically removed through tedious yet  successful myomectomy of 40 myomas, thus deserving description.
