Abstract

Tumors of the uterus are extremely uncommon. Pure lipomas of the uterus are very rare, and only a few cases have been reported. We are presenting a case of a post-menopausal lady, a survivor of right breast cancer who had an 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18FDG PET/CT) for evaluation of a suspected right lung nodule. The scan was negative for hypermetabolic abnormality. However, a hypodense and non-metabolic lesion was seen in the fundus of the uterus. On subsequent hysterectomy, it was found to be a pure lipoma.
