Cavernous haemangiomas of the uterine cervix are very rare and usually harmless. Nevertheless, the case reported of a 31-year old multiparous woman in the 34+1 gestational week, who presented herself with a fast growing cervical haemangioma, indicates, that this benign tumour may cause obstetrical complications.

    ABSTRACT: Gutartige Tumoren des Uterus gehören zu den häufigsten Neoplasien des weiblichen inneren Genitales. Neben zystischen Veränderungen werden auch zahlreiche solide Veränderungen beschrieben, die von allen histologischen Strukturen des Uterus ausgehen können. Nicht alle diagnostizierten Befunde stellen eine Behandlungsindikation dar. In der Entscheidung über operative Interventionen oder exspektativ klinisches Verhalten sollte der behandelnde Arzt mit der Diagnostik, dem klinischen Bild und der Differenzialdiagnostik vertraut sein.

    ABSTRACT: Benign tumors of the uterus belong to the most common neoplasms of the inner female genital tract. In addition to cystic changes, solid tumors are also frequently described. These can develop from all existing histological structures within the uterus. Not all diagnosed findings are an indication for an interventional procedure. For a medical decision on surgical intervention or clinical surveillance, there is an utmost need for the medical practitioner to be familiar with diagnostic approaches, clinical features and differential diagnosis.

    ABSTRACT: In general, mesenchymal tumors are only rarely encountered in the uterine cervix, where they constitute less than 1% of all malignancies. In this report, the salient clinicopathologic features of the reported cases of primary mesenchymal lesions of the cervix are comprehensively reviewed. Included are lesions displaying skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, adipocytic, myofibroblastic, fibrohistiocytic, fibroblastic, neural, nerve sheath, neuroectodermal and vascular/pericytic differentiation, as well as those whose line(s) of differentiation is (are) currently uncertain. Where applicable, supplemental and unpublished data from the files of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (Washington, DC) are also detailed. For the published cases, the overall ratio of benign to malignant cases is approximately 1.9:1. The most commonly reported mesenchymal malignancies, listed in order of decreasing frequency, are embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma (approximately 150 cases), leiomyosarcoma (approximately 30 cases), undifferentiated endocervical sarcoma (17 cases), alveolar soft part sarcoma (11 cases), Ewing sarcoma (9 cases), malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (8 cases), and liposarcoma (4 cases). The most commonly reported benign mesenchymal tumors, reported with almost equal frequency, are hemangioma and leiomyoma. Each of the aforementioned lesions is associated with a relatively distinct clinicopathologic profile. Generalizations about the poor prognosis associated with “cervical sarcomas” are therefore no longer appropriate, and each case must be evaluated within the context of the reported cases of that specific histologic subtype.
