Abstract

Uterine hemangioma is a rare benign tumour and can be congenital or acquired. Acquired is associated with physical changes such as tissue injury, hypoxia, endometrial curettage, increased blood volume during pregnancy and hormonal alterations. Uterine hemangiomas are found incidentally, remain asymptomatic and may present with bleeding per vaginum. Only 73 cases of uterine, cervical, vaginal and fallopian tube hemangiomas are described in the literature. In this report we describe additional two cases of uterine hemangioma.
