Abstract

Epithelioid angiomyolipoma of the uterus: a case report and review of literature

Background: Epithelioid angiomyolipoma (EAML)-a recently recognized pathologic entity-reportedly can develop at various anatomical sites, but rarely in the gynecological region, particularly in the uterus. Case presentation: We present a rare case of extrarenal EAML that developed within the uterus of a 57- year old woman without tuberous sclerosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed that the tumor was mainly composed of mature adipose tissue. Conclusion: This case offers new insight into the appearance of extrarenal EAML in the uterus on MRI.
