Cervical myomas arise from the smooth muscle cells of the cervix accounting for 2% of all uterine leiomyomas. This is a case report of a 31-year-old lady who presented with a white, watery vaginal discharge, and a 6-hour history of protrusion per vaginam. Examination revealed a progressively increasing mass protruding per vaginam. She underwent a vaginal myomectomy, and a leiomyoma 13 × 12 × 7 cm with areas of necrosis was removed. She did well postoperatively. Vaginal myomectomy is an effective procedure for patients with huge leiomyomas.
