Abstract

Angiomyofibroblastoma (AMF) is a distinctive, rare, benign mesenchymal tumor that often occurs in the lower genital region of women. The most commonly reported location of an AMF is in the vulvovaginal area. We describe a rare case of an AMF located in the broad ligament in a 47-yr-old woman. The patient experienced menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, and subsequent menstrual spotting. She sought help at the National Cheng Kung University Hospital. Ultrasonography showed an echo-complex mass in the left adnexal area. The patient underwent laparoscopic surgery to remove the soft tissue mass located in the left broad ligament. The final pathology of the mass was reported as an AMF. We reviewed all of the AMF cases reported in the English-language literature found in Pubmed. This case is the first of AMF located in the broad ligament.
