Soft Tissue Lesions Involving Female Reproductive Organs

Reference work entry


The most common benign mesenchymal tumor of the gynecologic tract is a leiomyoma. The most frequent malignant mesenchymal neoplasms of this anatomic region in pediatric and adult patients are rhabdomyosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma, respectively. Because these entities are well-recognized and expertly covered elsewhere in this textbook, they are not discussed in this chapter. Instead, this section concentrates on the myriad of other less common mesenchymal processes that occasionally affect the female reproductive organs. We attempt to cover the better documented and most relevant entities as comprehensively as space allows, and include brief comments and/or references for rarer lesions. Supplemental data from the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology Tumor Registry is included for selected topics. It is important to remember that some of the entities under discussion have only recently been recognized and remain works in progress. Readers are directed to standard soft tissue tumor texts for additional reading.
