Abstract

Introduction: Pure lipomas of the uterus are exceedingly rare, and their origin is of deep interest in terms of histogenesis. The tumours often pose a diagnostic challenge and a host of differentials are made on clinical and radiological assessment. The authors present a case of a pure uterine lipoma detected at a peripheral Airforce hospital.
Materials and Methods: Case report with clinical, ultrasound and histopathological findings.
Conclusion: A rare case with a controversial histogenesis and recently described chromosomal anomalies adds to our knowledge of this uncharacteristic lesion in the uterine corpus.

Keywords: Hamartoma, Leiomyoma, Lipo-leiomyoma.
