Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is an impressive clinical entity in women of reproductive age in which multiple nodules stud the pelvic and peritoneal surfaces, often mimicking disseminated carcinoma grossly. It has been associated with pregnancy and oral contraceptive drug use. In recent years, LPD has been reported with increasing frequency, often in women who are not pregnant. This report documents two additional cases of LPD; both cases concerned women who were not pregnant, and one case was associated with endometriosis.
