Uterine leiomyomata are the commonest neoplasms of female reproductive tract. On an average there are six to seven fibroids in the affected uterus. These neoplasms may lead to symptoms like menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, pressure effects, urinary frequency, pelvic pain, infertility and pelvic mass. Here we present a case report of 34 years old nulliparous women having an unusual number (48) of fibroids. As she was nulliparous and wanted to conceive, her uterus was conserved and all the fibroids were surgically removed.
