Abstract

A case report of myxoid leiomyosarcoma of the uterus is presented as a rare variant of uterine sarcoma. This case, contrary to most of the 11 cases previously described in the literature, is characterized by highly atypical pleomorphic cells and numerous mitoses. Furthermore, myxoid material is also found in the cytoplasm of pleomorphic tumor cells, a feature, that to our knowledge, has not been previously described. All these tumors, no matter what the microscopic appearance is, exhibit a highly malignant behavior. The best therapy for this tumor is unknown, since there are too few cases from which to draw conclusions.
