Endometrial Stromal Sarcomas (ESSs) extremely very rare malignant tumors of all uterine sarcomas and occupies less than 10% of all uterine malignancies. As it mimicks uterine fibroid, it is very difficult to recognize clinically because they share common clinical features, that is why diagnosis is often made postoperatively after proper histological examination. ESSs histologically resemble stromal cells of proliferative phase of the menstrual cycle. We report a case of low-grade ESS presented clinically as a case of a uterine leiomyoma.
