Abstract

In this study, we describe morphological and immunohistochemical features of a mixed tumor (atypical leiomyoadenomatoid tumor – LMAT) localized in the body of the uterus. Aim of study: LMAT-type tumors are very rare and only 5 cases have been described in the literature so far, therefore this case report seems particularly noteworthy. Materials and methods: A 57-year-old patient was admitted to the Gynecology and Obstetrics Unit, Brothers of Mercy Hospital in Katowice for hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy due to uterine myomata. The macroscopic examination of the surgical material revealed a polycystic tumor, 5 cm in diameter, with gelatinous contents and grey fibrous areas. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 4, in good general condition. A histological diagnosis of an atypical leiomyoadenomatoid tumor was established on the basis of the tissue material.
