Lipoleiomyoma of the uterus is a rare benign uterine tumour -a variation of leiomyoma. The presence of fatty tissue in the myometrium is anomalous, interpreted as lipomatous degeneration, smooth muscle metaplasia or as a benign tumour called as lipoleiomyoma. Imaging plays an important role in determining the intrauterine location and fatty nature of lipoleiomyomas.
We report a rare case of pedunculated submucosal lipoleiomyoma projecting into endocervical canal in which USG and MRI were useful to characterise the lesion, confirmed histopathologically.
