Uterine tumors composed of a prominent component of smooth muscle and endometrial stroma (so-called stromomyoma) are distinctly uncommon. This article describes the morphological features of one such tumor discovered as an incidental finding in a hysterectomy specimen of a 49-year-old lady with a clinical diagnosis of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Morphological and immunohistochemical (IHC) evaluation were performed and a final diagnosis of endometrial stromal nodule with smooth muscle differentiation was rendered.
