A uterine adenomyoma of endocervical type was presented histopathologically in a 44-year-old woman. She had a mural tumor of the uterine endocervix, which showed a well-circumscribed margin and multiple cysts filled with mucin. Histologically, the tumor was composed of a proliferation of endocervical glands and smooth muscle. The glandular epithelial components were cystic and occasionally papillary, but neither component showed cytological atypia. A differential diagnosis of the uterine endocervical tumor should include adenomyoma of endocervical type.
