Abstract: Cervical fibroids are rare pelvic tumours with varying clinical presentations. Clinical and radiological evaluation of these fibroids help in deciding the treatment approach. There will be surgical difficulties due to their close proximity to pelvic organs like bladder, ureters and rectum. Hence proper intraoperative delineation is important. We present a series of four cases of cervical fibroid with different presentations and management. All these cases were evaluated and surgically managed without complications. The first and third case presented with huge mass per abdomen and pressure symptoms. Both underwent exploratory laparotomy where fibroid was enucleated followed by hysterectomy. The second and fourth case mimicked like a large polyp. In both the cases, cervical fibroid was excised vaginally and was followed by hysterectomy. Histopathological examination was suggestive of cervical leiomyoma. Therefore, cervical fibroid as a differential diagnosis should always be considered while evaluating any pelvic masses.
