Abstract BACKGROUND: Ovarian granulosa cell tumors are often associated with endometrial hyperplasia or carcinoma. The endometrial carcinoma is thought to occur under the influence of the estrogen receptor pathway and is typically a low-grade, low-stage endometrioid adenocarcinoma. CASE: We present a case of a woman with a granulosa cell tumor of the ovary and a synchronous serous carcinoma of the endometrium. Immunohistochemical stains for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and p53 protein were performed on both tumors. CONCLUSIONS: Not all uterine tumors associated with ovarian granulosa cell tumors have low-risk histology. Preoperative evaluation of the uterus with attention to tumor subtyping is important for optimum staging and therapy.
