We report two cases of uterine lipoleiomyoma in postmenopausal women of ages 52 and 55 years, who presented with complaints of leukorrhea and lower abdominal pain, respectively. Lipoleiomyoma is a rare benign variant of leiomyoma, having an incidence of 0.03%–0.2%. These are benign pelvic tumors which are usually asymptomatic and commonly occur in obese postmenopausal women. However, they can occasionally present with typical leiomyoma symptoms. Imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of benign pelvic tumors. Ultrasonography is the first imaging modality for diagnosis of pelvic tumors in females. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are specific in demonstrating the uterine origin and fat component.
