Objectives: This study intended to evaluate the incidence of uterine fibroids in married Sudanese females. Methods: In this prospective study a group of 150 symptomatic and asymptomatic subjects between the ages of 18 and 50 years were examined for the incidence of uterine fibroids. Study conducted in different ultrasound departments in Khartoum during two years. Patient data including marital status, marriage duration, gravity, parity, body mass index (BMI) and clinical history were collected using standard data sheet. Ultrasound brightness mode (B-mode) for pelvis was performed using real time Akola SSD 650, Toshiba and Medison ultrasound medical systems. The applied ultrasound transducer was a convex probe with a frequency 3.5 MHz. Protocols of scanning was designed according to the standard established by the American institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). Results: The incidence of uterine fibroids was (10. 7% (8% single fibroids and 2.7% multiple fibroids) in study subjects. Subserous fibroid is the commonest type of uterine fibroids (44%) and detected in age group of 41-48 years. 23% were nulligravida, 30% were primigravida and 47% were multigravida. It is important to note that 72% of the subjects were overweight, 3% were underweight and 25% were with normal weight. For ethnic consideration, females from Center of Sudan show the highest incidence of fibroids (60%), while females from the South of Sudan show the lowest incidence (5%). Conclusions: In conclusion, the incidence of uterine fibroids showed considerable variation among different regions of Sudan. In agreement with previous studies, fibroid incidence is increasing with age and decreasing with parity. The recurrence of fibroids with pelvic surgery is high. Overweight and high blood pressure are associated with high risk of developing fibroids. Uterine fibroids are associated with certain clinical features that should be considered when using ultrasound to diagnoses such cases. The incidence of fibroids is low compared with previous studies.
