We report two cases of two women underwent laparoscopic hysterectomy and myomectomy. During surgery, three myomas were identified as completely detached from the uterus, and attached to the bowel. Patients's history revealed a laparoscopic myomectomy. Our first hypothesis therefore was that these were lost myomas of the first surgery. However, only one leyomyoma was removed in both patients. Therefore, we can assume that these myomas were not certainly not lost-myomas and we may conclude that it could be either as residues of previous morcellation or they were pedunculated-myomas that have been spontaneously detached from the uterus and re-implanted onto the bowel.
