Abstract

Endometrial adenofibroma is an uncommon mullerian mixed tumor composed of benign epithelial and mesenchymal components. This tumor must be distinguished from other malignant lesions of the uterus, particularly adenosarcoma. The authors report three cases of endometrial adenofibroma and discuss their clinical and histopathologic features. The tumors were diagnosed in patients 31, 55 and 63 years of age. In all three cases polypoid lesions of 13, 2 and 5 cm, respectively, were found in the uterine cavity. A polypectomy was performed in two cases; one patient underwent hysterectomy. Follow-up was available for two patients who are today alive and well.
