Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, which has autosomal dominant inheritance, shows pigmentation in lip and skin. It also has features of harmatomatous polyp over the gastrointestinal tract, while sometimes developing tumor in genital tract. Known tumors in female genital tract include cervical adenocarcinoma, sex cord tumor, etc. Adenomyomatous polyp in uterus is also one of the rare diseases, which seldom develop in the absence of hormone treatment such as Tamoxifen. Currently, there is one case of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome patient with endometrial adenomyomatous polyp. Authors found mole-like lesions on the transvaginal ultrasonogram in a typical Peutz-Jeghers syndrome patient without pregnancy history and previous chemotherapy. After confirming its diagnosis of adenomyomatous polyp on resectoscopic biopsy, we report our fihndings along with brief literature review.
