Abstract

Background:

Synchronous primary malignancies of the female genital tract constitute 1.7% of all genital malignancies.

Case:

A 45-year-old para 5 woman presented with loss of appetite and abdominal distention. Provisional diagnosis of ovarian malignancy was made. Final histopathology of the specimen revealed ovarian papillary serous cystadenocacinoma with cervical leiomyosarcoma. She received chemotherapy.

Results:

Patient is on regular follow-up.

Conclusion:

The coexistence of primary neoplasms in the ovary and cervix are rare. A normal appearing organ may have a hidden malignancy. So, every surgical specimen should be subjected to detailed histopathological examination. Also, the possibility of synchronous malignancy elsewhere in body should be kept in mind while working on a genital malignancy.
