Abstract  

Objective: Diffuse uterine leiomyomatosis (DUL) is rare and almost occurs in the corpus uteri without involving the cervix. Here the authors report a patient with DUL only involving the cervix. Case Report: A 42-year-old female was admitted to this hospital for prolonged menstruation and shortened menstrual cycle in September 2016. Repeated gynecologic and imaging examinations only confirmed an obvious enlargement of the cervix. After careful preoperative assessment, the patient underwent a well-prepared cervical resection procedure and the pathological report confirmed diffuse leiomyomatosis. Her menstrual cycle resumed normally after one month postoperatively. Conclusion: DUL only involving the cervix is extremely rare in clinic and doctors should assess symptoms and prescribe supplementary examinations individually in order to adopt the most appropriate treatment.

Key words:  Diffuse urerine leiomyomatosis (DUL)      Cervix      Cervical resection procedure      Diagnosis      Appropriate treatment
