Endometrial adenofibroma was first described in 1959 as a benign form of mixed mesodermal tumor .
To date, approximately 30 cases of adenofibroma have been reported in the literature (considering only English publications) (Table 1) [1-18].
Although attempts have been made to diagnose adenofibroma using ultrasonography, CT, MRI, hysteroscopy, and/or biopsy, these methods were successful in only three patients [3,16,17].
Young women with adenofibroma may be given the option of lesion removal under hysteroscopic visualization, allowing retention of the uterus and reproductive potential.
Necrotic tissue, likely the adenofibroma, was present in the uterine cavity after hysterectomy.
Flexible hysterofiberscopy and MRI are also useful for the diagnosis of adenofibroma, which formed a polypoid mass in the uterine cavity.
