Abstract
Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is a relatively rare form of uterine sarcoma. Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) of the myometrium compose just 0.2% of uterine malignant tumors. Low-grade stromal sarcoma has extended beyond the uterus in 40% of cases at the time of diagnosis, but the extra-uterine spread is confined to the pelvis in two thirds of the cases. A few cases of extra-uterine endometrial stromal sarcoma have been reported in literature concerning the ovary and pelvis. We have experienced a Post-total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingooophorectomy retroperitoneal endometrial stromal sarcoma, so we report this case with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Endometrial stromal sarcoma, Post-total hysterectomy with bilatateral salpingooophorectomy, Retroperitoneum
