Uterine lipoleiomyomas are rare benign tumors in which there is admixture of smooth muscle cells and mature adipocytes. Cervical lipoleiomyomas are still rarer, occurring in obese perimenopausal and postmenopausal women. These tumors are usually asymptomatic and can be accidental finding in hysterectomy specimen. We present a case of subserosal cervical lipoleiomyoma in a postmenopausal woman who presented with III uterovaginal prolapse. Literature search reveals few cases reported so far.
