Uterine lipoleiomyoma is a rare benign tumour, with only 8 cases reported in the radiological literature to date. It is easily misdiagnosed as an ovarian teratoma on radiological imaging studies. This report is of a patient with uterine lipoleiomyoma as an incidental finding. Preoperative diagnosis of uterine lipoleiomyoma is possible with the use of ultrasound and computed tomography scanning of the abdomen and pelvis.
