Xanthogranulomatous endometritis is an uncommon benign lesion characterized by the destruction of endometrium and replacement by the sheets of foamy histiocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells, multinucleated giant cells, fibrosis, calcification, and accompanying polymorphonuclear leukocytes. It is commonly mistaken for malignancy clinicoradiologically, and therefore, histopathological examination is of utmost importance. We report the case of a 61-year-old postmenopausal female who presented with pyometra, bulky uterus, and cervical stenosis, and histopathology revealed XGE.
