Abstract

Perivascular epithelioid cell tumor (PEC-oma) is a rare mesenchymal neoplasm. Literature reports more than 100 cases of PEC-oma, a third of which is of uterine or uterine retroperitoneum origin. The case of a 59-year-old woman presented here is, to the best of our knowledge, the first described fast uterine PEC-oma recurrence of the tumor of the gastrointestinal tract origin. In this text the authors also present literature review concerning this rare female tumor.
