Ovarian leiomyoma is a rare benign cancer affecting the ovary with an incidence of 0.5–1.0% of all benign ovarian cancers. Concomitant occurrence of ovarian cancers of various histology, e.g. leiomyoma and adenfibroma cysticum serosum, is extremely rare. The purpose was to present the case of leiomyoma of the right ovary concomitant with bilateral ovarian adenofibroma cysticum serosum. The material analysed were surgical reports carried out in the Gynaecological-Obstetric Ward, SP ZOZ, Lipsko in 1985–2001, and histopathological results (tentative and definitive). A 60-year-old female was qualified for surgery (hysterectomy with adnexia) for numerous uterine myomas and bilateral ovarian cysts. Intrafascial hysterectomy with adnexia was performed by the Aldridge technique. Final diagnosis was made in the Department of Pathomorphology at the Regional Hospital in Radom following microscopic assessment of the postoperative material. Only one case of ovarian leiomyoma was noted among the patients operated on for various pathologies of the sex organs during 17 years of collecting clinical material in the ward. Concomitant occurrence of ovarian leiomyoma and bilateral ovarian adenfibroma cysticum serosum is a casual case. Key words: ovarian leiomyoma, rare benign ovarian cancers, surgical treatment
