Abstract

Background: Spindle cell hemangiomas are rare vascular tumors characterized by cavernous blood vessels and spindled areas reminiscent of Kaposi's sarcoma. Cervical hemangiomas are rare, and the spindle cell subtype is rarer still. Case: Examination of a 39-year-old patient presenting with pelvic pain revealed a remarkable pelvic mass consisting of a 10-cm tumor extending from the cervix to the retroperitoneum. The pathology report demonstrated spindle cell hemangioma. Conclusion: This is a rare case of spindle cell hemangioma of the cervix resected transvaginally.
