Uterine sarcomas are mesenchymal tumors; they are rare, representing less than 2-3% of all uterine malignancies. Among them, we can define four types: leiomyosarcoma (LMS), endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS), Adenosarcoma and Carcinosarcoma. This last type was recently reclassified by FIGO as a Mullerian type of the endometrial adenocarcinoma. Therefore, today only the first three types are histologically considered.

Abstract

Uterine sarcomas are mesenchymal tumors; they are rare, representing less than 2-3% of all uterine malignancies. Among them, we can define four types: leiomyosarcoma (LMS), endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS), Adenosarcoma and Carcinosarcoma. This last type was recently reclassified by FIGO as a Mullerian type of the endometrial adenocarcinoma. Therefore, today only the first three types are histologically considered.
