Synchronous malignancies of the female genital tract are a very rare entities. Synchronous endometrial and ovarian cancer (SEOC's) is defined as simultaneous presence of these two cancers at the time of diagnosis as opposed to the metachronous cancer where these two cancers are diagnosed at different chronologic time points. Clinical presentation of these women is indistinct, and due to the different management and the favorable prognosis of SEOC's, an extensive pathological evaluation is required to distinguish SEOC's from the metastatic disease. Synchronous and Metachronous malignant tumours are the two components of multiple primary malignant tumours (MPMT's). The distinction between the independent primary tumors and metastatic tumours is clinically significant and complicated. Synchronous endometrial and ovarian carcinoma is a rare entity. SEOC's are more frequently undiagnosed. Henceforth, the diagnostic dilemma of SEOC's versus metastatic disease is challenging and therefore separating the two groups is important as the prognosis is different.
