Reference work entry


This chapter deals with neoplasms of the uterus in which there is mesenchymal differentiation. Purely mesenchymal tumors, such as those derived from smooth muscle and endometrial stroma, are considered, as are some benign and malignant neoplasms in which there are mixtures of epithelium and connective tissues. We use a slightly modified version of the comprehensive classification of mesenchymal neoplasms of the uterus, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO; [409]) which is shown in Table 10.1 .
