Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Müllerian adenosarcoma is typically composed of benign glandular epithelial elements admixed with malignant sarcomatous stroma. This rare tumour usually originates in the endometrium and grows as a polypoid mass into the endometrial cavity. CASE REPORT - We report the case of a woman aged 32, who presented with abnormal vaginal bleeding and was diagnosed with an adenosarcoma after a curettage and subsequent hysterectomy. CONCLUSION - This tumour has a relatively good prognosis among the mixed mesenchymal sarcomas of the uterus and the majority of patients with this neoplasm survive. The gynecologists and pathologists should be aware of this entity and discuss the risks and benefits of radiation and chemotherapy, which is usually indicated for malignant diseases.
