Objective: reporting two cases of adenomatoid tumour (AT) of the female genital tract and to reviewing the pertinent literature, emphasising histopathological features and differential diagnosis. Cases report: two cases of AT of the female genital tract are reported; they were diagnosed by histological and immunohistochemistry studies of surgical specimens. The first case concerned a 39-year-old woman who consulted for uterine bleeding; uterine myomatosis was suggested by clinical and ultrasonographic diagnosis, but the pathological study revealed an AT. The second case concerned a 26-year-old woman with a left ovarian mass. Ooforectomy initially diagnosed the histological material as endodermal sinus tumour and it was then sent for consultation. Discussion: AT is an infrequently occurring mesothelial benign tumour of the female genital tract; its treatment only requires conservative surgery. Its differential diagnosis includes malignant primary and metastatic tumours of both the uterine body and the ovaries, requiring oncologic resection and complementary chemo- and/or radiotherapy, according to their clinical state.
