Pelvic sonography reported a fibroma sized 29�45 mm as a myoma in the uterus. Due to abnormal vaginal bleeding which was refractory to medical therapy, myomectomy was done.

The diagnosis of the second pathology review of the same specimen was placental site trophoblastic tumor. Serum hCG level was 119 milliunit in milliliter.
