Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a mesenchymal neoplasm seen usually in the kidney. Few cases of extra renal AML have been documented in various organs including the female genital tract, where the uterus is the most common site. To the best of our knowledge, only 4 cases of AML in the cervix have been reported in the literature. Association of AML with tuberous sclerosis is well known. Presently AML is included in the spectrum of disease entities called PEComa. We report a case of AML without tuberous sclerosis arising from the uterine cervix, which has to be differentiated from lipoleiomyoma.
