Arvind E. Rathod | Vibhuti D. Ambawade | Anjali S. Pawar


Abstract: We report a case of uterus like mass of left broad ligament presenting as palpable mass in a 45-year-old female. A mass in the region of left broad ligament demonstrated a cavity lined by endometrium and surrounded by bundles of smooth muscles resembling myometrium. Review of literature disclosed only about 30 cases of uterus like mass at different sites. Clinically uterus like mass of broad ligament presents as dysmenorrhoea with or without per vaginal bleeding. Presentation as palpable mass is very rare. Histogenesis of this entity is still unknown, however several theories have been proposed. Theory of transformation of subcoelomic mesenchyme is most likely in present case.
