The pathology of uterine smooth muscle tumors and mixed endometrial stromal-smooth muscle tumors: a selective review with emphasis on recent advances



The pathology of uterine smooth muscle tumors and mixed endometrial stromal-smooth muscle tumors: a selective review with emphasis on recent advances



International Journal of Gynecological Pathology 19(1): 39-55



This review focuses on the pathology of uterine smooth muscle tumors (SMTs), with a particular emphasis on those studies published in the past 15 years that have expanded our knowledge of these tumors which still present diagnostic challenges for the pathologist. Leiomyoma variants, leiomyosarcoma, SMTs of low or uncertain malignant potential, epithelioid SMTs, SMTs with unusual growth patterns, and mixed endometrial stromal-SMTs are discussed.
