Aggressive angiomyxoma was first described in 1983 by Steeper and Rosai, and fewer than 150 cases have been reported in the world medical literature. Aggressive angiomyxoma is a rare mesenchymal tumor occurring predominantly in the pelvic-perineal region of females of age group 30 to 50 yrs. These tumors are benign and often reach too large dimensions before becoming clinically symptomatic. We report such a case presented as broad ligament tumor, a very unusual presentation. Patient underwent laprotomy and tumor was successfully excised.

Keywords: Aggressive angiomyxoma, Pouch of Douglas.
