Benign metastasizing leiomyoma rarely follow TAH/BSO in patients with uterine myoma and estrogen replacement therapy may play a role in such occurrence. Despite surgery to remove these tumors, they can still recur; therefore, there is need for prolonged surveillance in such patients after resection.
