Abstract

Background Endometrial stromal sarcoma (ESS) is an uncommon malign neoplasm, and its occurrence outside the uterus is extremely rare in the absence of metastasis or extension of a primary uterine neoplasm. When arising in the pelvis or abdominal cavity, ESS is associated with uterine adnexa or serosal surface of various organs.
