Abstract

Extrauterine adenomyomas are defined as circumscribed tumor-like masses consisting of smooth muscle tissue, endometrioid glands and stroma. They are extremely rare tumors and similar to their uterine counterparts. We report case of a 50 year old female with an extrauterine adenomyoma of the liver associated with pelvic endometriosis. To the best of our knowledge, only fifteen cases of extrauterine adenomyomas have been reported with only one previous case in the liver. This is the first case of extrauterine adenomyoma of the liver associated with pelvic endometriosis.
