Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the clinicopathological characteristics and the clinical outcome of synchronous malignant neoplasms of the female reproductive tract. Material and Methods: Patients who were operated and diagnosed with synchronous malignant tumor of the genital system (n=25) at the Dokuz Eylul University Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Gynecologic Oncology Unit between 1992 and 2012 were included into this study. Recurrent, metastatic and metachronously detected tumors were not included. Age at diagnosis, parity, menopausal status, hormone use, presenting sign or symptoms and the clinical outcomes were evaluated. Results: 20 of 25 patients had endometrial-ovarian cancer. The mean age at diagnosis was 53,6 years. The most common presenting symptom was abnormal uterine bleeding. The median follow-up duration for all patients was 69 months. Overall survival for all patients was 87 months and 81 months for patients with endometrial-ovarian cancer. 5-year survival rate was 73% for all patients and 68% for patients with endometrial-ovarian cancer. Conclusions: Endometrial-ovarian cancer togetherness is the most common in synchronous gynecologic malignancies. They occur at a younger age and have more favorable prognosis than metastatic primary gynecologic tumors.
