Abstract

Synchronous multiple primary neoplasms of the female reproductive tract are rare cases and has ranged from 0.54% to 2.1%. Rare cases of synchronous endometrial cancer and squamous cell carcinoma in situ of the cervix have also been discribed in the literature. Recently, it has been reported that the frequency of multiple primary neoplasms is increasing as a result of the lengthening average lifetime, progress in cancer screening techniques, and improved cancer therapy. We have experienced a case of synchronous endometrial cancer and squamous cell carcinoma in situ of the cervix in Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Pathology, College of Medicine Korea University and discribed our case with a brief review of literature.
