Abstract

Uterine leiomyomas (fibroids) affect 2.6% of pregnancies. They are usually silent, but on occasions can complicate pregnancies. A case of a 30-year-old pregnant woman with a uterine fibroid incarcerated in an umbilical hernia is presented. This is the second reported case of a fibroid in pregnancy with such a presentation.
