BACKGROUND Uterine leiomyomas rarely cause pseudo-Meigs' syndrome with elevated serum CA 125 levels. CASE A 39-year-old patient with a large uterine leiomyoma is described. The associated massive ascites, pleural fluid, and increased CA 125 level all seemed to be related to the uterine tumor. Hydropic degenerating leiomyomas are characterized by focal accumulation of edema and collagen deposition.
