Lipomatous uterine tumors are unusual benign neoplasms. Here, we report a case of lipoleiomyoma in a 45-year-old perimenopausal woman who presented with lower abdominal pain and distension. Ultrasonography revealed a small hyperechoic mass and multiple leiomyomas within the pelvic cavity. Gross examination of the hysterectomy specimen revealed multiple subserosal leiomyomas. On microscopy, presence of mature fat admixed with smooth muscle was noted, which was an incidental finding consistent with a uterine lipoleiomyoma. Hence, it emphasizes the importance of histopathology in the confirmation of the diagnosis. The importance of this case lies in its rarity and its enlistment in the differentials of lipomatous tumors in the pelvic cavity. We seek to discuss such a distinct entity.
