Living reference work entry


This chapter deals with neoplasms of the uterus in which there is mesenchymal differentiation. Purely mesenchymal tumors, such as those derived from smooth muscle and endometrial stroma, are considered, as are some benign and malignant neoplasms containing mixtures of epithelium and connective tissue. The categories used here are slightly modified from the comprehensive classification of mesenchymal neoplasms of the uterus developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) (Kurman et al. 2014), shown in Table 1.
