Endometrioid tumors tend to be malignant in most cases and accounts for roughly 20.0% of all cases of
ovarian cancer. This form of ovarian epithelial carcinoma tends to simulate atypical endometrial glands.
As the tumor grows, it infiltrates into the surrounding tissues and organs, allowing the tumor to feed with
greater ease and become more solid. Survival after the appearance of an endometrioid tumor of the ovary
depends upon the stage and grade of the tumor at the time of diagnosis and the treatment modality followed.
Because of the high possibility of malignancy, aggressive chemotherapeutic regimen and possibly extensive
surgery should commence as soon as possible. If the tumor is diagnosed early and successfully treated,
patients have a five-year survival rate of 75.0%. We report an unusual case of isolated primary endometrioid
carcinoma of the ovary in a 55-year-old woman, who presented with dull aching pain and lump in the right
lower abdomen for the last 3 months.
