Sacroma of the corpus uteri should be considered as a differential diagnosis in postmenopausal women presenting with severe abdominal pain, thought to be due to degenerative changes of leiomyoma uteri. We present a rare case of leiomyosacroma in a postmenopausal White woman. Diagnosis was missed preoperatively for degenerating uterine fibroid.
