A 52‐year‐old postmenopausal woman presented with signs and symptoms of acute pelvic inflammatory disease. On vaginal speculum examination, an infected polypoid tumor protruding from a dilated cervical canal was disclosed. While the patient was under extensive antibiotic treatment, uterine curettage was performed. This was followed a few days later by a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo‐oophorectomy. Histopathological examination demonstrated the tumor to be Müllerian adenosarcoma of the uterine endometrium. The patient had postoperative vaginal vault irradiation, and more than 1 year later she is alive with no evidence of recurrent disease. Diagnosis and management of uterine Müllerian adenosarcoma is discussed.
