We report on two unusual clinical presentations of broad-ligament leiomyomas. The first case was a combination of broad-ligament leiomyoma and ectopic gestational sac at the same location. The other case was a broad-ligament leiomyoma presenting as an ovarian malignancy. The differential diagnosis of broad-ligament leiomyoma should be considered in cases of an adnexal mass. Additionally, a broad-ligament leiomyoma could be the reason for an ectopic pregnancy.
