Abstract: The diagnosis of benign cervical that does not rely on imaging, but the clinical and histological examination. Indeed, the main question is: is it a benign or malignant lesion? Among the benign lesions, the variety of lesions that may be encountered is important. However, knowledge of the typical aspects of the most common injuries helps confirm a diagnosis and avoid unnecessary explorations. Lipoleiomyomas are uncommon benign neoplasms of uterus and are considered to be a variant of uterine myomas. Their reported incidence varies from 0.03 to 0.2%. We report this case of cervical lipoleiomyoma because of its rarity, and we emphasize the difficulty of making the diagnosis of malignancy and benign cervical lesions.
