The case of an incarcerated gravid fibroid uterus in a 32-year-old woman is presented. This rare complication of pregnancy is readily identified by specific symptoms, physical examination, and ultrasound findings. If the condition is undiagnosed and untreated, spontaneous abortion and preterm labor often occur.
