Uterine fibroid surgical preparation should take into account the risk of an unexpected concurrent malignancy. Curettage prior to uterine fibroid surgery isn’t standard procedure, but incorporation of curettage may discover rare pathologies. This case study shows that routine curettage prior to uterine fibroid surgical treatment correlates with diagnosis of unexpected pathological findings -even a neoplastic transformation as rare as placental site trophoblastic tumor (PSTT).
