We report a 44 year old previously healthy premenopausal woman who presented with a three month history of vaginal bleeding and a 5 cm vaginal mass obscuring the cervix on physical examination. Ultrasound evaluation was non diagnostic. Pelvic MRI demonstrated a 6 cm soft tissue mass in the vagina prolapsed from the uterine cavity with a visible connecting stalk, which is termed the broccoli sign. The initial radiological differential diagnosis included prolapsed uterine malignancy or leiomyoma. Surgical pathology revealed a polypoid adenomyoma. We conclude polypoid adenomyoma should be included in the differential diagnosis for prolapsed uterine tumor demonstrating the broccoli sign.
