ABSTRACT
Introduction: Synchronous primary cancers are very rare in the general population. We present a rare case of synchronous primary endometrial and primary fallopian tube cancers.
Case: The patient, a 61 year old female presented with postmenopausal bleeding, and diagnosed as Carcinoma Endometrium was taken up for Total Abdominal Hysterectomy with Bilateral Salpingo oophorectomy with Bilateral Pelvic Lymph Node Dissection. The histopathology revealed synchronous primary carcinomas of endometrium and left fallopian tube.
Conclusion: The reason for better median overall survival of patients with synchronous primary endometrial and fallopian tube cancers is not intuitively obvious; perhaps because it is low grade and biologically less aggressive, detection of patients at earlier clinical stage is essential for appropriate management.
