Abstract

Although supracervical hysterectomy is an increasingly popular modality for surgical management of benign uterine conditions data exploring all of its consequences are still forth coming. This case report will discuss the scenario of leiomyoma recurrence at the cervical stump after supracervical hysterectomy. After supracervical hysterectomy, the remnant cervix has the potential for leiomyoma formation. Surgeons performing supracervical hysterectomy should be aware of this possible outcome.
