Cervical fibroid is a surgical challenge to the gynaecologist, more so when an attempt to conserve the uterus is made in young patients who want to preserve their fertility. The presenting complaint in cervical fibroids are mainly pressure symptoms due to compression on surrounding structures in the pelvis, which is an indication for surgical management. The mainstay of treatment in older patients who have completed family has been hysterectomy. Here authors report a case of 29-year-old young multiparous women, who underwent caesarean section in her second pregnancy because of cervical fibroid diagnosed antenatally elsewhere, presented to us postnatally with pain and pressure symptoms with abdominal distension due to that central cervical fibroid for 7 months in the postnatal period. She was managed by uterus conserving surgery with the involvement of a multi-disciplinary team.
