A case of atypical polypoid adenomyoma occurring in a 40 yr-old female is reported. The lesion was composed of irregular glands lined by atypical epithelium lying in a spindle cell stroma containing smooth muscle cells. The mitotic count of the stroma was less than 1 per 10 high power fields. Squamous metaplasia was present in the glandular elements. Ultrastructural examination of the stroma confirmed the presence of smooth muscle cells. The lesion is compared with similar cases previously reported. The differential diagnosis is considered, including endometrial adenocarcinoma, adenomyosis, endometrial polyps and mixed Mullerian tumours. Atypical polypoid adenomyoma is a benign lesion, and conservative management is recommended.
