Pyomyoma (suppurative leiomyoma of the uterus) is a rare condition associated with a high fatality rate. Only surgical intervention is lifesaving. It usually develops in association with either recent pregnancy or in postmenopausal patients who have underlying vascular disease. Since 1945 only 15 cases of pyomyoma have been reported in the literature. We present a rare case of pyomyoma in a 64-year-old woman with a brief review of the literature.
