High-Grade Serous Carcinoma Resulting From Rectal Endometriosis and Complicated With Ovarian Cancer

We report a rare case of high-grade serous carcinoma resulting from rectal endometriosis and complicated with ovarian cancer. A 63-year-old Chinese woman was admitted with a complaint of abdominal distension. We diagnosed the patient with ovarian carcinoma and decided on elective cytoreductive surgery as treatment for the patient. During the surgery, we found a solid mass of diameter 12 cm in the anterior rectal wall containing sticky brown fluid. Postoperative histopathological examination revealed high-grade serous carcinoma resulting from rectal endometriosis and complicated with ovarian cancer. The patient postoperatively received 6 cycles of chemotherapy consisting of carboplatin and paclitaxel and was followed up for 1 year with no recurrence of the condition.
