A patient with a large prolapsed submucous myoma is usually performed by vaginal myomectomy. Acute infection is a contraindication of surgery. This report describes a 25-year-old nulliparous woman who suffered from a large prolapsed submucosal myoma with pelvic abscess that was successfully removed through vaginal myomectomy, after anti-infection therapy and GnRH to cause the myoma to shrink. This study confirms the reliability, safety, and efficiency of transvaginal myomectomy in this special case.
