We performed laparoscopic myomectomy for treatment of a large, twisted, subserous myoma at 25 weeks of pregnancy in a woman with acute abdominal pain that did not respond to analgesic therapy. There are few reports in literature about laparoscopic management of uterine leiomyoma during the first half of pregnancy that demonstrate its feasibility in selected cases. Laparoscopic myomectomy can be considered a minimally invasive alternative to the traditional laparotomy when myomectomy is necessary during the second half of pregnancy, resulting in less postoperative pain and shorter recovery time.
