Even though lipoma is the most common soft tissue tumor, pure lipoma primary to uterus is very rare. Most reported cases have been of mixed type, consisting of admixture with smooth muscle or fibrous tissue. Preoperative diagnosis is seldom made and usually comes to light only on pathological study. We report a case of a 60 year old woman presenting with lump in abdomen. CT scan report was suggestive of leiomyoma with fatty degeneration. Gross showed fatty tumor in the uterus and microscopy confirmed the diagnosis of pure lipoma of uterus.
