This pathology is estrogen-dependent, and long-term prognosis is very good after resection. Below are representative images from a 44-year-old woman with multiple previous uterine myomectomies. Axial (a) and sagittal (b) T2-weighted MR images and a sagittal fat-suppressed, T1-weighted image following intravenous administration of gadolinium (c) demonstrate multiple, bilateral, heterogeneously enhancing masses in the pelvis (arrows). Coronal (d) and sagittal (e) contrast-enhanced CT scans demonstrate tumor extension into the right common iliac vein and inferior vena cava (arrowheads).
