Abstract
Introduction: Uterine lipoleiomyomas are a rare type of uterine myomas, which have been seldom diagnosed and are less known and still unusual. Histologically they are composed of smooth muscle cells with multiple fat cells and fibrous tissue. Their pathogenesis is still a stigmata and their preoperative diagnosis is still questionable. Case report history: A 39-year old woman presented at the University clinic for obstetrics and gynecology with complaints of a mild low abdominal and pelvic pain, increased frequency of vaginal bleeding and abdominal distension. Ultrasound examination showed dislocated uterus by a large semisolid tumor, located between the uterus and the urinary bladder. This mass was not well defined and had great vascularity. Pelvic computerized tomography revealed a large heterogeneous tumor located behind the bladder, measuring 8.5x7.5cm in size, making compression on the other pelvic organs. Conclusion: We should pay more attention on the preoperative imaging studies, in order to select patients who require surgery and further treatment more appropriately.

Key words: uterus, pelvic tumor, myomas, imaging studies.
