Early-stage endometrial cancer may have microscopic omental metastases which is associated with a poor prognosis. There are no standard guidelines for omentectomy in early-stage endometrial cancer without risk factors. Brenner tumor is a rare ovarian tumor which is usually benign, but rarely, it may be malignant. Some Brenner tumors are endocrinologically active. Various studies have shown an association of Brenner tumor with endometrial hyperplasia, polyp, or early-stage carcinoma, probably due to its estrogen-secreting nature. We report a rare case of well-differentiated endometrioid adenocarcinoma of the uterus with <50% myometrial invasion with omental metastases associated with benign Brenner tumor of the ovary in a postmenopausal female.
