A 61 year-old woman initially diagnosed as degeretated submucosal myoma came to the hospital asking for the second opinion. Although the result of the endometrium biopsy was Class II, malignancy was still highly suspected by MRI findings. Abdominal total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. Pathological diagnosis was adenosarcoma of the uterus. It is difficult to make a definitive diagnosis without surgery, however, typical MRI findings will help us making clinical decisions.
