Abstract

Uterine sarcomas are rare tumors, and there is limited scientific evidence on the subject. The significance of this case presentation lies in the tumor histotype, a low-grade unclassified spindle cell uterine sarcoma. On a comprehensive review of the literature, no publications pertaining to this tumor were found, as it remains an undescribed entity defying conventional categorization. This lack of precedent makes the best way to approach both the tumor and its outcomes challenging. Although histologically identified as a low-grade tumor, its clinical behavior has shown a recurrence pattern more similar to high-grade tumors. Consequently, we must proceed with caution and remain vigilant regarding the adjuvant treatments we have prescribed and the subsequent follow-up. Hence, additional studies and case reports concerning this pathology are required for the ongoing management of this atypical uterine sarcoma.
