The Authors report their experience in 24 cases of sarcoma of the corpus uteri observed between 1971 and 1981. After pointing out that their experiences confirm the extreme rareness of these neoplastic forms they dwell on diagnostic, prognostic and histologic criteria of classification and conclude that sarcomas of the corpus uteri - mostly leiomyosarcomas - of fibromatous origin - are always potentially very malignant with low 5-year survival rates despite combined treatment with surgery + radiotherapy + antiblastic therapy.
