  • mural:
    1. benign:
      • leiomyoma
      • nodular adenomyosis or adenomyoma
      • other benign soft tissue

    3. carcinosarcoma: malignant mixed Mullerian tumors (MMMT) are worse than high-grade endometrial adenocarcinomas, have molecular expression monoclonality between the two components, and with vascular invasion and mets be more common in the epithelial component (so treatment to focus on that component1.
