of the cervix that secondarily involves the vulva may imitate a PT due to the formation of polypoid mass, a similar leaf-like architecture, and biphasic pattern.
Mullerian adenosarcoma (MA) of ovary with sarcomatous (rhabdomyoblastic) overgrowth is an extremely rare malignant type of female genital tract neoplasm.

of the uterus: a clinicopathologic analysis of 100 cases with a review of the literature," Human Pathology, vol.
A similar type of tumor, Mullerian adenosarcoma
, was first described in 1974 .
However, they described cases of mullerian adenosarcoma
and rhabdomyosarcoma of the uterine cervix with heterologous mesenchymal elements, such as cartilage and fatty tissue.
(MA) is relatively a rare type of mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tumor of the uterus.
A subsequent study, (2) in 1979, added a few cases to the original series, and the term Mullerian adenosarcoma
has since become universally recognized.
In differential diagnosis, mullerian adenosarcoma
should be considered.
Mesenchymal tumors, including MMMTs, endometrial stromal sarcomas, mullerian adenosarcoma
, leiomyosarcomas and uterine pleomorphic rhabdomyosarcomas, have been more recently described with tamoxifen use [3,9] and have a poor prognosis.
A graver potential pitfall in the differential diagnosis is an extension of a Mullerian adenosarcoma
of the cervix into the vulva.
