Cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma is an extremely rare variant of uterine leiomyomas. Although they are pathologically benign, they manifest as sarcomatoids because of their appearance. A 34-year-old single patient was admitted to the Obstetrics and Gynaecology outpatient clinic for recurrent abnormal uterine bleeding and inguinal pain. The patient underwent hysterectomy with a diagnosis of recurrent cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma. In this report, we discuss the aggressive clinical course of a patient with recurrent cotyledonoid dissecting leiomyoma resulting in hysterectomy, which has been reported in a limited number of studies in the literature.
