Abstract

The spectrum of uterine smooth muscle cell tumours (SMT) ranges from leiomyomas to leiomyosarcomas (LMS). Atypical leiomyomas (AL) are a uterine SMT of a contentious nature due to its indeterminate malignant potential. Although the risk of recurrence is low there is limited experience on management. On the other hand, it is generally believed that the uterine LMS arises de novo, rather than from a precursor lesion.
