Abstract  
The incidence of uterine leiomyoma in women aging from 35 to 50 years is reported to be 70-80%. Generally, leiomyoma is classified according to the locations and directions of growth, and the most common types including subserosal, intramural, and submucous myoma. Only about 0.4% of leiomyoma develops in the cervix of uterus, and it would be even rare to find a cervical leiomyoma with a size similar to a full-term uterus, as reported here, which poses a challenging situation for gynecologists.
Key words:  Cervical leiomyoma      Uterine myoma
