The rare case presentation of angiolipoleiomyoma (ALLM) of the uterus with review of diagnostic and discriminative information for this entity.

Case report with review of the literature.

Department of Pathology and Obstetrics and Gynecology at Jessenius Medical Faculty in Martin.

The ALLM of the uterus is rare benign mixed mesenchyme tumor consisting of smooth muscle bundles, foci of mature fat tissue and abnormal vessels.

The presented case is describing a 53-year-old women hysterectomized for multiple uterine myoma of which two showed the histological signs of ALLM. On imunohistochemical profile are these tumors negative for melanocytic features, e.g. HMB-45, what distinguishes them from angiomyolipomas, which are currently categorized into so called PEComas – tumors originating from perivascular epithelial cells.

Key words:
uterus, leiomyoma, angiolipoleiomyoma, angiomyolipoma, PEComa.
