BackgroundPrimary sarcomas of the uterus are uncommon, leiomyosarcoma being the most frequent. Most uterine sarcomas arise de novo, with malignant transformation of a benign mesenchymal tumor being a very rare event, and is reported only in leiomyomata. DesignThe clinicopathologic features of 3 uterine liposarcomas arising in association with a lipoleiomyoma were studied. Immunohistochemistry for desmin, h-caldesmon, S100, and MDM2, and fluorescence in situ hybridization for the t(12;16) (q13… 
Giant Lipoleiomyoma of the Cervix Mimicking Ovarian Cancer in a Premenopausal Woman: A Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
This case of lipoleiomyoma of the uterus in a premenopausal woman is reported because of this patient's rare presentation and radiologic examination results were suggestive of a possible mitotic etiology of ovarian origin.
Liposarcoma of the uterine corpus: A case report and literature review
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of a liposarcoma of the uterine corpus when a neoplasm contains adipose tissue and a nonuniformly thickened or partially nodular septum on MRI.
Uterine Lipoleiomyoma: A five year clinicopathological study.
TLDR
Uterine lipoleiomyoma is a benign fatty tumor with favourable outcome and complex histogenesis with emphasis on its presumptive histogenesis and the possible origin of this tumor.
Clinical and pathological features of lipoleiomyoma of the uterine corpus: a review of 76 cases.
TLDR
The lipoleiomyoma of the uterus seems to have a benign clinical course and was seen more frequently in patients with adenomyosis, endometriosis,endometrial hyperplasia, polyps, and various gynecologic carcinomas.
Lipoleiomyoma - A rare tumour of the uterus
TLDR
Uterine lipoleiomyomas are uncommon benign tumours in gynaecological histopathology specimens because of its rarity and interesting histogenesis and confirming the benign nature of this tumour is important because it can closely resemble well-differentiated liposarcoma.
Uterine Lipoleiomyoma (A Case Report)
TLDR
A case for a fifty- seven year old postmenopausal female presented to the gynecological department with pelvic pain and heaviness and the histopathological diagnosis was consistent with lipoleiomyoma, the uterus showed multiple small leiomyomas.
Uterine Lipoleiomyoma in Peri or Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
Six cases of lipoleiomyoma experienced in an institution from January 2005 to March 2015 are reported; the patients ranged in age from 45 to 70 years; the etiology may be related to estrogen deficiency occurring after menopausal transition.
Uterine Lipoleiomyoma in a Premenopausal lady: Rare Presentation of an Uncommon Entity
TLDR
A case of lipoleiomyoma of uterus is reported in a 37 year old lady presented with irregular uterine bleeding, diagnosed incidentally on histopathological examination of the hysterectomy specimen.
Lipoleiomyoma: incidental finding in a postmenopausal woman
TLDR
A 65yearold postmenopausal woman presented with symptoms of uterine prolapse and complained of a single episode of bleeding that lasted for 5 to 6 days, confirming a diagnosis of lipoleiomyoma.
Case report of a rare pure uterine lipoma treated by laparoscopic hysterectomy
TLDR
A 60-year-old woman referred to the authors' hospital with both an ovarian and a uterine tumor, which were found by her physician during a routine physical checkup, has since recovered, without any complications, and she was discharged on the 8th postoperative day.

TLDR
The study supports a notion that uterine lipomatous neometaplasia originates from pericapillary pluripotential mesenchymal cells and suggests that lipom atous differentiation of immature neoplastic cells can occur in a preexisting leiomyoma, as well as simultaneously with leiomers differentiation.
A myxoid liposarcoma arising in a leiomyoma of the uterus: a case report
TLDR
A case of the uterine liposarcoma arising in a leiomyoma in 48-year-old woman who presented with dysmenorrhea, brownish vaginal discharge, and a rapidly enlarging lower abdominal mass is described.
Pleomorphic liposarcoma of the uterus: case report and literature review.
TLDR
A 62-year-old woman with a history of breast carcinoma being treated with tamoxifen presented with a rapidly enlarging pelvic mass, which appears to be the first example of tamoxIFen-associated uterine liposarcoma.

TLDR
The eighth case of uterine liposarcoma with extension to broad ligament in a 23-year-old woman who presented with pelvic pain, dysuria, and rapidly enlarging pelvic mass is reported.
Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor of the Uterus: A Clinicopathologic Study of 6 Cases Emphasizing Distinction From Aggressive Mesenchymal Tumors
TLDR
The clinical and pathologic features of six IMTs of the uterus are reported, and histologic and immunohistochemical features that distinguish IMTs from uterine spindle cell neoplasms that require aggressive treatment are emphasized.
Bizarre leiomyomas of the uterus: a comprehensive pathologic study of 24 cases with long-term follow-up.
TLDR
This study firmly establishes the benign behavior of bizarre leiomyomas, even for those tumors with high cellularity, numerous widely distributed bizarre cells, and mitosis counts in the 2-7 MFs/10 HPFs range by the highest count method.

TLDR
Lipoleiomyoma of the uterus seems to have an uneventful clinical course and can now be confidently regarded as benign.
Leiomyosarcoma arising in a lipoleiomyoma.
TLDR
Pure sarcoma similar to the malignant portion of the lipoleiomyoma had metastasized to the vaginal wall, and Histologically, the firm tissue was a mixture of bland smooth muscle, fat and fibrous tissue, whereas the soft areas showed a malignant spindle cell tumor with smooth muscle differentiation.
Atypical Lipoleiomyoma of the Uterus
TLDR
The features of this tumor suggest that at least some lipoleiomyomas result from lipomatous metaplasia of leiomyoma, which is the first reported case of its kind in a 55 year old obese woman.
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the uterus with prominent myxoid change
TLDR
Based on the immunoreactivity of tumor cells for ALK and h‐caldesmon, the present tumor was considered inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor showing a focal phenotypic transition from myofIBroblasts to smooth muscle cells.
