Uterine leiomyomas are the most common benign lesions of the uterus. This commonest tumour can vary in sizes, locations, degenerations and presentation. In most cases, they are easy to diagnose clinically with help of imaging. We present a case of a fibroid with excessive myxoid degeneration where the preoperative diagnosis was haemangio/angiosarcoma. However, cellular leiomyomas are a variant of leiomyoma with more cellular component. Myxoid degeneration in leiomyoma is uncommon and has to be differentiated from leiomyosarcoma. Histopathology is confirmatory in arriving at a diagnosis.
