PURPOSE: :The purpose of this paper is the presentation of a case of an aggressive angiomyxoma of the uterine cervix in a 29-year-old woman.
METHOD: :The patient was presented with dysuria, and mild suprapubic pain. The preoperative diagnosis after the physical examination was uterine cervical polyp.
RESULTS: :Histological examination performed after surgical excision however, showed a densely vascular, poorly circumscribed neoplasm, composed of spindle-shaped cells widely spaced from each other in myxoid stroma. These findings were compatible with the diagnosis of an aggressive angiomyxoma.
CONCLUSION: :Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare soft tissue tumor of the pelvis and perineum. Pathologic and clinical characteristics of the tumor are discussed
