Lipoleiomyoma of uterus are a rare variant of uterine leiomyoma. Clinically the symptoms are indistinguishable from an ordinary leiomyoma. It is diagnosed pre-operatively as leiomyoma or mature ovarian teratoma. Majority of them are post operative chance finding. Solid tumors of broad ligament are also rare. Most of them are lateral extensions from the uterine tumors. Primary lipomas of broad ligament are rare. They are asymptomatic in majority of cases and are incidental post-operative finding. We report this case because of the rarity of individual lesions and rarity of the combination and also speculate their histogenesis as adipose tissue is rare absent at both locations.
