BACKGROUND: Lipomas presenting in the female genital tract are most commonly seen in the vulva or myometrium as a component of a leiomyonia. These lesions have the gross appearance of a typical lipoma. CASES: Two cases of spindle cell lipoma occurred, one incidentally encountered in the cervix and the other presenting as a vulvar mass. Both lesions demonstrated histologic features characteristic of spindle cell lipomas normally found elsewhere, and the diagnosis was supported by immunohistochemical staining patterns. CONCLUSION: This is the first report of spindle cell lipomas diagnosed in the female genital tract.
