Although endometrial adenofibromas are benign lesions, total hysterectomy is recommended, because these neoplasms may recur if incompletely curetted or locally excised [4, 5].

These features suggested that the tumor was an adenofibroma. Hysterectomy was recommended, because an adenosarcoma may be present within the residual tumor or an adenofibroma may develop invasive potential and recur [4, 5].
Papillary projections--considered a strong sign of malignancy--are more common in borderline tumours than in invasive cancers but may also be seen in benign tumours, for example, in adenofibromas. They explain many false-positive ultrasound diagnoses of malignancy.
