Pedunculated subserous leiomyosarcoma is a quite rare presentation of leiomyosarcoma. As of 2013, only three cases have been reported in the literature. In this case report, we document two new cases of pedunculated subserous leiomyosarcoma from uterine fundus. These two cases illustrate the difficulty of making a correct differential diagnosis between a pedunculatedsubserous uterine leiomyosarcoma and a malignant ovarian tumor before intervention. A review of the literature confirms that this site remains unusual and making the diagnosis is difficult.
