Abstract
Inflammatory pseudotumors are benign lesions that have been described most commonly in the lung, and also in a wide variety of extrapulmonary sites. But, they appear to be rare in the female genital tract and especially in the uterus. This rare tumor simulates a true neoplasm both clinically and morphologically and presents a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. We report a case of inflammatory pseudotumor of uterus, which was misdiagnosed as uterine leiomyoma preoperatively. To the best of our knowledge, the case reported here is the fifth inflammatory pseudotumor of the uterus in the world, and the first in Korea.
Key Words: Inflammatory pseudotumor, uterus
