Abstract

In this case report, the management of a patient with Sneddon’s syndrome who underwent laparoscopic hysterectomy for menometrorrhagia and multiple leiomyoma uteri is discussed. The clinical management of Sneddon’s syndrome is based on four distinct aspects: Neurological, hematological, dermatological, and psychiatric. Their analysis can be a valuable tool in the preoperative and postoperative monitoring of these patients.
