Core Tip Uterine myoma are rarely associated with polycythemia. Here we report the challenging case of an obese patient with a giant fibromatous uterus and associated polycythemia; these factors increased significantly the risk of venous thromboembolism. To reduce such risk, we opted for a laparoscopic hysterectomy, which was preceded by phlebotomy. Laparoscopy was successfully completed without complications. The uterus weighed 5400 g. After surgery the patient’s hematological profile normalized. The final diagnosis was myomatous erythrocytosis syndrome (MES). To our knowledge, this is the first case of laparoscopic hysterectomy in an obese patient with a very large uterus and polycythemia due to MES.
