Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is a rare clinicopathologic entity typically observed in women of reproductive age. Its malignant degeneration has been reported in literature in only three cases. In this report we describe the clinical course of two more cases with proved malignant transformation of LPD; both cases were treated with combined chemotherapy.
