Author information

A rare case of Mullerian adenosarcoma of the uterus is described, found during diagnostic curettage. Panhysterectomy was performed. These rare tumors have a low potential for malignancy and are characterized by benign epithelial and malignant stromal elements. They should be distinguished from the highly malignant mixed Mullerian tumors which contain, by definition, both carcinomatous and sarcomatous elements. The literature on the subject has been reviewed.
