Abstract
Introduction: Leiomyoma of the uterus is the most common tumor of the female reproductive tract. While most leiomyomas on histology are usual myomas, sometimes rare variants may be encountered.
Case Report: We report a case of an atypical uterine leiomyoma in a 49-year-old multipara, who presented with continuous bleeding per vaginum of one month duration and discuss the pathophysiology, salient clinical features and management of this rare condition.
Conclusion: Atypical leiomyoma is a rare variant of uterine smooth muscle tumors, which mimics leiomyosarcomas, and may even be its precursor lesion.

Keywords: Atypical leiomyoma, Leiomyosarcoma, Uterine smooth muscle tumours
