The coexistence of carcinoma of the endometrium and ovary of female genital tract are an uncommon event, and it occurred in 5% of the patients with endometrial cancer and 10% of the patients with ovarian cancer. However, most of them are metastatic lesion from one organ and synchronous primary cancers from both organs are rare. In the present case, we experienced a case with simultaneous primary cancers from endometrium and ovary, occurring in 37-year-old woman presented with abnormal vaginal bleeding. Preoperative endometrial biopsy revealed endometrial carcinoma, and magnetic resonance imaging showed both ovarian lesion, which is suspicious of malignancy. Intraoperative and histological finding showed stage Ib endometrioid endometrial carcinoma and stage IIIc mucinous adenocarcinoma of both ovary, and we present this case with a brief review of reference.
