Abstract
Cavernous hemangioma of the uterus is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor. Most cases have been reported in young, pregnant women and the condition is very rare in a postmenopausal patient. An 81-year-old woman presented with a huge pelvic mass. Abdominal computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging results suggested a leiomyoma with degenerative change and hemorrhage. Microscopically, large, thick-walled and variable-sized vascular channels were evident in the majority part of myometrium; the lining cells were immunohistochemically reactive for CD31. Vascular tumors of the female genital tract should be cautiously excised due to the profuse intra-operative bleeding. The pathological examination of a hysterectomy specimen is the only method to confirm the diagnosis of this tumor.
