Adenomyoma is a tumor ("-oma") including components derived from glands ("adeno-") and muscle ("-my-").[1] It is a type of complex and mixed tumor.

Uterine adenomyoma

In obstetrics and gynecology contexts, it is a form of adenomyosis that forms a mass or growth around the tissue of the inner uterus.

Most cases of adenomyosis are non-symptomatic. However, it may present with dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain. In case of juvenile cystic adenomyoma, laparoscopic enucleation results in a statistically and clinically significant reduction in dysmenorrhea, ease in any chronic pelvic pain and low risk of recurrence.[2]
