Case Discussion

This finding is already known and described in the prior ultrasound examination (not available).

Uterine lipoleiomyoma results from the degeneration of smooth muscle cells of an ordinary leiomyoma and represent a rare benign tumor of the uterus. It's often seen as a predominantly fat-containing well-demarcated mass with areas of soft tissue density arising from uterus, such as in this case.
