Uterine smooth muscle tumors: The benign, the bizarre, and the deadly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Though most of these common tumors are benign, 0.5% of patients undergoing hysterectomy for presumed fibroids will be found to have a leiomyosarcoma, which usually kills within 5 years if it spreads outside the uterus. And five patients' leiomyosarcomas weren't diagnosed until after UAE.
