Giant Uterine Lipoleiomyoma Masquerading as Endometrial Carcinoma in a Young Nulliparous Lady - Clinical and Imaging Challenges

Uterine lipoleiomyoma is a benign variant of leiomyoma. It is rare and is composed of smooth muscles and mature adipocytes. It affects perimenopausal and menopausal women. It is important to differentiate it from neoplasms that demand surgical excision. We report a case of giant lipoleiomyoma in a 30 year old nulliparous lady. The objective of presenting this case is to review current concepts and present the imaging findings of this entity.
