Abstract

Fibroids are common in women of childbearing age. Ulipristal acetate, until recently was commonly used in the management of fibroids prior to surgery or embolisation. We present a case of a young woman who presented with a necrotic, prolapsing fibroid following a 12-week treatment with ulipristal acetate.
