Cesarean myomectomy (CM) has been a controversial surgical procedure. It is fraught with increased blood loss and its associated postoperative morbidities of anemia, blood transfusion and sepsis or even an unintended obstetric hysterectomy. This case reports a life-threatening hemorrhagic shock in a patient for whom 2 large myomas were extracted during cesarean section. Safety of CM depends on proper case selection with small sized, subserous, pedunculated fibroids and the speed and skill of surgeon.

Keywords: Cesarean, Myomectomy, Blood transfusion, Hysterectomy.
