Abstract

A case of a 67-year old woman with adenosarcoma of the uterus is reported. Adenosarcoma is a mixed mesodermal tumour with a low malignant potential. It is characterised by a benign glandular and a malignant stromal component. Adenosarcomas are usually treated by hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Patients with myometrial invasion have an increased risk of recurrence. It may be appropriate, to consider adjuvant chemotherapy or radiation treatment for these patients.
