Abstract: A 49-year-old female patient was referred to this hospital due to uterine tumor. Needle biopsy of the uterine body was done after admission which suggested MFH (malignant fibrous histiocytoma) or poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. The patient died after 11 days of admission before doing any surgical treatment for the tumor. Autopsy disclosed an adult head-sized pelvic tumor mass with multiple metastasis in lung, peritoneum and intestine. We confirmed the diagnosis of the present case as pleomorphic leiomyosarcoma by immunohistochemical study and electron microscopy in addition to routine light microscopy. The DNA distribution pattern of the tumor was determined by cytofluorometry and it was aneuploidy. The case report is presented with histological, immunohistochemical, electron microscopical, and cytofluorometrical study herein.
