Endometrial stromal sarcomas originate in the endometrial cavity. These tumors represent between 15-27.9% of uterine sarcomas. We present the case of a 41-year-old woman who underwent surgical hysteroscopy for metrorrhagia over a period of one month who had an intrauterine polypoid mass detected by ultrasonography. Histologic analysis of the polypoid mass removed by hysteroscopy was a high-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma of the uterus. The description of this case provides an opportunity to review the literature on uterine sarcomas diagnosed by surgical hysteroscopy.
