A metaplastic hyaline cartilaginous tissue with no mitosis and necrosis in foci was observed (Figure 4).
In 1925 Neumann for the first time described the presence of hyaline cartilage in the fundus of uterus between endometrium and myometrium; the reason of hysterectomy was pelvic inflammatory disease.1 After that Taylor and Roth published a detailed case series and considered possible causes of heterotopic cartilage within the myometrium.2 They witnessed that each of their cases of heterotopia was associated with either endometriosis or endometritis, suggesting metaplasia as the prime cause of heterotopia.2 Metaplasia is replacement of one type of tissue with another and is a normal response to chronic inflammation, tissue damage, repair and regeneration.1 Endometrium is the commonest site of cartilaginous heterotopia.
