Abstract

Background and Objective: A polypoid uterine hemangioendothelioma was treated by conservative means. Study Design/Materials and Methods: The diagnosis of hemangioendothelioma was confirmed by histopathology and angiography. The patient desired to retain her fertility; therefore, the hemangioendothelioma was treated by hysteroscopically guided Nd:YAG laser ablation. Results: Five years of follow-up by hysteroscopy and dilation and curettage reveal no evidence of recurrence. The patient continues to have regular menses. Conclusion: Conservative management of a uterine hemangioendothelioma by Nd:YAG laser ablation was successful over 5 years of follow-up.
