RAMIREZ FAJARDO, Katia; TORRES ALFES, Grisell  and  FRUTOS RAMIREZ, Yuleydis K. Ultrasound diagnosis of uterine myoma in women with gynecological symptoms . MEDISAN [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.9, pp.1350-1357. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted in 76 patients attended in the Ultrasound Department of "Carlos Manuel de Céspedes" Hospital in Bayamo, Granma, from June 2011 to January 2012, in order to describe the sonographic characteristics of the uterine myoma in women with gynecological symptoms. Among the analyzed variables were age, race, sonographic findings and correspondence between the presumptive and sonographic diagnosis. Those diagnosed with uterine myoma, age group of 15-45 years and black women prevailed in the series. Also, multiple myomas and those of intramural location prevailed. Cystic degeneration and calcifications were the prevailing complications. There was not total correspondence between the presumptive medical indications of myomas and the final ultrasound diagnosis.

Keywords : woman; uterine myoma; necrobiosis; sarcomatous degeneration; secondary health care.
