The case presented is one of uterine fibroids found, at operation, to have migrated into the left ischio-rectal fossa. It was thought to be of interest because a review of the literature failed to disclose any similar case. It was further remarkable in that a fibroid mass of such size could be so successfully 'hidden' as to be missed completely on clinical examination. The anatomy of the case is illustrated with the aid of a diagram.
