Case contributed by Dr Bruno Di Muzio


CT staging for breast cancer.

Patient Data

Age: 67
Gender: Female

CT Abdomen and pelvis

As an incidental finding is delimited a predominantly fat containing well demarcated myometrial nodule on uterine anterior body wall.

Case Discussion

This finding is already known and described in the prior ultrasound examination (not available).

A uterine lipoleiomyoma results from the degeneration of smooth muscle cells of an ordinary leiomyoma and represent a rare benign tumor of the uterus. It's often seen as a predominantly fat containing well demarcated mass with areas of soft tissue density arising from uterus, such as on this case.
