dc.descriptionA CAJM article on the prevalence of Fibiomyoma in Zambian women admitted at Lusaka University Teaching Hospital..en_GB
dc.description.abstractFibiomyoma arising in the uterus is the most frequently occurring neoplasm found in women. It occurs also in the broad ligament, round ligament fallopian tube, vagina, urethra and vulva. The tumour originates as a leiomyoma. Varied estimates of the occurrence of uterine fibromyomata have been given in the literature. An incidence of 33 pc of Negroid women over the age of 20 years and 10 pc of Caucasian women of the same age group has been reported. Of all the fibromyomata, only about 5 pc of these are submucous and they are perhaps the most important clinically. They tend to lead to a foul smelling vaginal discharge and vaginal bleeding which may be quite heavy at times.en_GB
