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.

Abstract in Chinese

子宫脂肪平滑肌瘤和阔韧带脂肪瘤:罕见病例 摘要 子宫脂肪平滑肌瘤是子宫平滑肌瘤的一种罕见的变异。临床症状与普通平滑肌瘤难以区别。手术前常被诊断为子宫肌瘤或卵巢成熟畸胎瘤。它们中的大多数是手术后的偶然发现。阔韧带肿瘤也是罕见的。他们中的大多数是由子宫肿瘤横向扩展而来。原发性阔韧带脂肪瘤是罕见的。它们无症状,在大多数情况下,是术后偶然发现。我们报告本病例是由于个体病变的罕见性及其结合的罕见性,并推测其组织发生是因为脂肪组织在两个部位都缺失。 关键词:脂肪平滑肌瘤,子宫阔韧带,脂肪瘤
