Abstract
Background. Small cell carcinoma in the uterine corpus rather than the endometrium has not been reported yet which resembles a uterine leiomyosarcoma on an imaging study. Furthermore, gynecologic malignancies manifested as a visual dysfunction render the early suspicion and accurate diagnosis a difficult proposition. Case. A 57-year-old Korean woman was referred to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology due to incidentally detected uterine mass. She had been suffering from a visual loss for several weeks. This uterine mass mimicking a leiomyosarcoma on pelvis MRI was identified to be a small cell carcinoma via a transvaginal gun biopsy and consequent immunostaining. The patient was then scheduled to undergo a regimen of chemotherapy with etoposide and carboplatin. Conclusion. Small cell carcinoma may arise from the uterine corpus rather than the endometrium and may also be accompanied by visual symptoms. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
