Endometrial cancer is more and more frequently diagnosed in women who have pregnancy plans at older age. After initial clinical staging, if endometrial cancer has been classified in stage I, detection of unsuspected metastasis (e.g. ovarian) is less than 5%. We present a case report of a 38-year-old patient with well-differentiated endometroid endometrial cancer without invasion in the myometrium and synchronous metastasis in one of the ovaries. Ovarian preservation has become routine in younger patients with squamous cervical cancer or very early stage ovarian cancer. Until present, this is has not been confirmed as a standard in early endometrial cancer, regardless of the histology subtype. Ovarian preservation should still not be routinely considered in early endometrial cancer, regardless of histology subtype, grading and degree of myometrium invasion.
