Lipoma of the uterus is a rare benign tumor, usually developing in postmenopausal woman. Clinical symptoms and physical signs are similar to those found in leiomyomas. Most are postoperative chance finding following hysterectomy for leiomyoma. A 50-year-old postmenopausal woman presented with vaginal prolapse. The hysterectomy specimen showed an intramural lipoma of the uterus. The diagnosis of pure lipoma of the uterus should be made when any smooth muscle if present is confined to the periphery of the tumor composing of mature adipocytes. Our case highlights the importance of this benign but rare entity.
