Abstract

We recently treated a 21-year-old woman with leiomyomas arising from the bilateral ovaries, a very rare condition. On magnetic resonance imaging, more than half of the left adnexal mass showed low signal intensity on T2-weighted images and good enhancement by gadolinium-DTPA, and the remaining part showed high signal intensity on T2-weighted images, so the lesions initially were diagnosed as ovarian fibromas or as thecomas with a certain degree of degeneration. Pathologic examination of the excised tumors proved that they were bilateral ovarian leiomyomas; in addition, the tumor from the left side showed hemorrhagic and myxoid changes with torsion of 180 degrees.
