Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare tumor that predominates in the female genital tract. Multiple relapses may occur in adjacent organs and tissues, but metastases have not been reported. We present a case of aggressive angiomyxoma in a young woman with multiple local recurrences that metastasized to the lungs, killing the patient. We document this case and report a similar one, found in the literature, of a postmenopausal woman with pulmonary and mediastinic metastases. These cases may expand the current concepts of potential behavior of aggressive angiomyxoma.
