Abstract Uterine myomas are one of the most common benign tumours, occurring in 20-40% of women of reproductive age. Ulipristal acetate (UPA) is a possible option for medical treatment of myomas. It induces amenorrhea and can reduce myoma volume before surgical treatment. Since its introduction in our department, we uncovered an unknown effect: migration of myoma.
