Synchronous primary tumors of female genital tract are rare with a rate of about 0.7-1.8% of all gynaecological tumours. Most common primary tumours presenting as synchronous lesions are ovary and endometrium. However, sex cord stromal tumors are rare variety of primary ovarian tumor and synchronous with endometrium is even much rarer. These tumors are detected usually in younger, overweight, nulliparous and perimenopausal female. Synchronous primary tumors of endometrium and ovary have a better prognosis than the either of above alone because these are usually low grade and diagnosed at early stage. We present a report of four cases of synchronous endometrial and sex cord stromal tumors of ovary.
