Recent trend has been towards non surgical approaches like GnRH hormone analogues or agonists, RU486 or selective uterine artery embolization, Laparoscopic cryoablation, radio frequency thermal ablation, MRGUS.

Objective: To analyse the clinico pathological spectrum in cases of Leiomyoma of the uterus in JJM Medical College to know the pattern of presentation, pathological co relation with type of fibroid and endometrial and ovarian changes. Materials and methods: A clinical study of 200 cases of fibroid uterus was made in Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, JJM Medical College, Davangere, from July 2016 to May 2019. The cases were selected by random allocation and detailed examination, clinical examination and investigations were made.
