Abstract

Background: MPMs are generally divided into 2-categories. The most common is endometrial and ovarian cancer but the coexistence is still unclear. Case: A 49-year old patient was admitted because of ovarian tumor extending from the right ovary an ascites. Immunohistochemistry reactions showed synchronous cancer: cervical (IIA1/T2a1), endometrial (IIIA/T3a) and ovarian (IIIB/T3b). Conclusion: Synchronous malignancies of female genital tract are very rare clinical situation. They account for about of 0.8–1.7% of malignancies. In relation to prognosis multiple synchronous cancers have a better outcome than metastatic disease of the same organs and the prognosis is limited to the tumor with the worst prognosis.
