Abstract

Malignant mixed Mullerian tumors (MMMT) are rare aggressive tumors that typically arise fromthe female genital tract. This malignancy has an extremely poor prognosis due to its rapid growthand the high associated incidence of both local recurrence and distant metastases. Althoughintraperitoneal metastasis from MMMT is relatively common, no reports exist regarding theradiologic findings of intestinal metastasis from MMMT. Here, we report a case of MMMT withsecondary small bowel metastasis and the associated radiologic findings.
