Abstract

Lipoleiomyoma is a rare benign variant of leiomyoma with an incidence of 0.03%-0.2%. Lipoleiomyoma consist of variable proportion of mature lipocytes and smooth muscle cells. These tumours are generally asymptomatic in obese menopause and perimenopausal women.


We present a case of 55-year-old, postmenopausal, obese woman with complaints of postmenopausal bleeding. Ultrasonography report of the patient revealed large well defined predominantly fat containing so tissues mass noted in left lateral uterine fundus and body of myometrium, suggestive of lipoleiomyoma of uterus. The endometrial thickness was 7 mm. Minimal invasive vaginal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingoophrectomy was done. The patient was finally confirmed as a case of benign lipoleiomyoma on the basis of histopathological findings.
