The presence of cartilage in MMMT is considered a favorable prognostic factor.8 Uterine sarcoma accounts for 3-5% of all corpus uteri malignancies; undifferentiated uterine sarcomas arise from the endometrium or myometrium, lacking any resemblance to normal endometrium and may show heterologous stromal elements in the form of cartilage, bone or rhabdomyoblasts.9 In our case the hyaline cartilage nodules were mostly located deep in the myometrium, close to the serosal surface and adjacent tissue exhibited foci of adenomyosis; the closest differential diagnosis ruminated was adenosarcoma.
