Abstract:


Background: Adenofibroma is a benign tumor composed histologically of epithelial elements and mesenchymal stroma. Carcinosarcoma is a malignant neoplasm that contains elements of carcinoma and sarcoma. Carcinosarcoma arising from adenofibroma of the uterus has never been reported in the literature in English language.

Case Presentaion: We report a case of a 56-year-old woman who complained vaginal spotting persisting for several months. We described here for the first time a case of malignant transformation of uterine endometrial adenofibroma into carcinosarcoma that was depicted as a multilocular cystic lesion with enhancing solid portions and stalk-like structure between the myometrium and endometrial mass.

Keywords:

Adenofibroma, carcinosarcoma, malignant transformation of adenofibroma, magnetic resonance imaging.
