Abstract

Synchronous cancers are defined as two or more histologically distinct malignancies arising in the same site, following each other in a sequence of < 2 months. Synchronous primary cancers are rare in general population and account for only 0.5-1.7% of gynaecological malignancies.1,2 It is important to distinguish synchronous primary tumors from metastatic malignancies.3 Case Report:  We report a case of 55 years old female with history of pain in abdomen for the last one year.
