Abstract
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) has been regarded as a non-invasive uterine-preserving treatment for women with uterine myoma. Numerous studies have reported that it is a relatively safe and effective treatment for uterine myoma. However, severe complications, such as deep thermal burn injuries, bowel perforation, and bladder injury, were reported on rare occasions. We report a case of a 4th degree burn on the lower abdomen after HIFU treatment for uterine myoma. Physicians must consider the possibility of deep thermal burn injuries when managing uterine myoma with HIFU.
