Atypical polypoid adenomyoma (APA) is an uncommon lesion of the uterus. APA is seen in perimenopausal women who have abnormal vaginal bleeding. We present a case of an APA, which in histological findings showed complex and atypical glands that could be confused with well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. The fact that it is a polypoid structure arising in the lower segment of uterus in younger women is helpful in diagnosing. The distinction between APA and a malignant condition is of high importance to treatment and prognosis.
