Adenomyomas are uncommon tumor-like masses that differ from adenomyosis mainly in that they are circumscribed nodular masses. It may be located within the myometrium, or it may involve or originate in the endometrium and grow as a polyp. Endometrial polyps account for about 2% of the manifestation of adenomyomas. Adenomyoma may occur between ages 22 and 60 years. This case is a very rare variant of adenomyoma with transitional epithelium coexisting with schistosomiasis within leiomyomatous smooth muscle. We believe that this is the first reported case of adenomyoma with transitional glandular epithelium coexisting with schistosomiasis in Nigeria and there was no reported case or any work of such in all the English literatures searched, hence the need to report the case.
