Cystic adenomatoid tumor of the uterus

J Cancer Res Ther. 2015 Oct-Dec;11(4):967-9. doi: 10.4103/0973-1482.163678.


We present a case of a cystic adenomatoid tumor in a 40-year-old woman. The tumor was an intramural multicystic mass, histologically similar to a multicystic mesothelioma. Cystic adenomatoid tumors of the uterus are extremely rare. They present with a wide differential diagnosis in radiology. The tumors are known to be benign and awareness of this rare entity is the key to its diagnosis for a pathologist.
