Removal of a giant fibroid during a caesarean section is very rare. We report a case of multiple myomectomy among which a huge myomas (cm 22, weight 3.000 g) in a 44 years old nullipara at 38 weeks. A 10 cm long suprapubic transversal incision according to Pfannenstiel on spinal anaesthesia was done; a female baby weighing 2.285 g, with Apgar score 9/10 was born. Owing to the uterine hypotonia following foetal extraction, myomectomy with womb preservation was carried out. Postoperative course was regular for mother and newborn too.
