We present a case of parasitic myoma complaining of abdominal pain, constipation, dyspareunia and dysmenorrhea 4 years after laparoscopic myomectomy. We performed laparoscopic myomectomy for multiple parasitic myomas. Three myomas were very firmly attached to bowel and mesentery. Parasitic myoma after laparoscopic surgery is very rare condition there are almost 35 cases in the literature. It is related with variable symptoms or can be asymptomatic. Laparoscopic surgeons should be aware of this situation, and further investigation should be made in case of suspicion. Surgery for parasitic myomas can be difficult in case of bowel and mesentery involvement and patient should be informed about the extensive surgery.
