Scattered adipocytes in an otherwise typical leiomyoma are a relatively common finding. A leiomyoma that contain a large number of adipocytes is called a lipoleiomyoma. We report a unique case of leiomyoma that presented with the following morphological features: mature spindled smooth muscle cells with and without nuclear atypia, epithelioid smooth muscle cells, mature adipose tissue, benign clear cells, coagulation necrosis. Only a few mitotic figures were noted. The rare occurrence of lipoleiomyomatous features in an otherwise pleomorphic leiomyoma prompted the report of the case below.
