Abstract

Uterine fibroid is estrogen dependent and rarely seen in post-menopausal females. Degenerative changes like calcification can occur in long standing cases of uterine fibroid. However, extensive calcification is rarely seen. Primary hyperparathyroidism manifest with calcification in various organs. We report a 63-year female presenting with lower abdomen pain, who was found to have dense fibroid calcification and on work up was found to have primary hyperparathyroidism with raised PTH and serum calcium levels.
