Abstract

Primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) is a rare tumor derived from fetal neuroectodermal cells. These tumors occur in the central nervous system and peripheral locations, but the occurrence of primitive neuroectodermal tumors located in the uterus is extremely rare. We present a 53-year-old woman with primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the uterus confirmed by immunohistochemical staining. We have experienced one case of PNET of the uterus and wish to report with brief review of concerned literature.
