Photo Title: Fibroid with hyaline degenration
Photo Info

Subtotal hysterectomy specimen with huge fibroid occupying the uterine cavity, fibroids are always paler than the surrounding myometrium yet this fibroid is darker as it shows classic hyaline degeneration verified by histopathology examination. This type of degeneration occurs when the fibroid outgrows its blood supply so it starts from the center of the fibroid then involves the whole fibroid depending on efficiency of blood supply.
