Abstract

Hysteromyoma is a common benign tumor in females. While pregnancy with submucous hysteromyoma is rare in the clinical setting, it often results in abdominal pain, red degeneration, abortion, placental abruption, premature rupture of membranes, premature delivery, fetal malformation, postpartum hemorrhage, and endometritis because of the tumor location, which in turn increases the incidence of cesarean section and hysterectomy. Submucosal myomectomy is not recommended during pregnancy because of the risk of miscarriage, bleeding, and premature delivery. Moreover, whether submucous myoma should be removed during cesarean section remains controversial. Thus, this study aims to review the diagnosis and treatment of pregnancy with submucous myoma.
