Myomectomy during Caesarean section is conventionally reserved for pedunculated myomas. When fibroids located in the lower uterine segment are encountered in pregnancy, due to fear of haemorrhage, obstetricians would prefer to perform a classical Caesarean section even with its high risk of subsequent uterine rupture and avoid the fibroids. We hereby present a case where removal of intra-mural fibroids in a 34-year old primigravida though inevitably performed, was successful.
