Abstract  
Primary giant retroperitoneal leiomyoma are rare pelvic benignomas with about a hundred described in the literature. We present a case of an extremely large abdominopelvic retroperitoneal solid tumor (leiomyoma) in a 43-year nuligravidas, 38 × 30 × 21 cm, weight 8600 g, resolved by tumorectomy with full recovery and fertility preservation.
Key words:  Myoma      Retroperitoneal tumor      Tumorectomy
