Fibroids are a common condition for women, and parasitic fibroids have been described to be rare complications following power morcellations during laparoscopic myomectomies. With improvement in surgical technique and training, laparoscopic myomectomies have become increasingly prevalent. Our case report of an unusual case of parasitic fibroids that recurred despite excision, highlights the difficulties in treating this complication. The atypical presentation of this case also reminds surgeons to be aware of the myriad of presentations that parasitic fibroids may have. Further research is still needed to determine the best approach of excision of parasitic fibroids.
