Lipoleiomyoma of uterus in a postmenopausal woman

J Midlife Health. 2010 Jul;1(2):86-8. doi: 10.4103/0976-7800.76219.


Lipoleiomyomas are uncommon benign neoplasms of uterus and are considered to be a variant of uterine myomas. Their reported incidence varies from 0.03 to 0.2%. Lipoleiomyoma consists of variable proportion of mature lipocytes and smooth muscle cells. These tumors generally occur in asymptomatic obese perimenopausal or menopausal women. We report this case of uterine lipoleiomyoma because of its rarity.
