Once obesity became a global health problem, the incidence of various malignancies reported a significant increase, leading to the hypothesis that a certain correlation might exist. This correlation was evident especially in hormonally dependent tumors such as endometrial cancer and breast cancer. In consequence, attention was focused on determining whether bariatric surgery weight loss induction might play a protective role. © 2017 Romanian Society of Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Ovarian carcinosarcomas are rare gynecological malignancies with high biological aggressiveness and poor outcomes when compared to their epithelial counterparts. However, it seems that the only way to offer a chance for cure for these patients is an aggressive surgical approach in order to achieve complete cytoreduction to no visible residual disease. We present a 57 year old woman who presented for diffuse pelvic pain and constipation and who was diagnosed with a large ruptured pelvic mass invading the recto-sigmoid colon. The patient was submitted to surgery, a total hysterectomy with bilateral adnexectomy en bloc with recto-sigmodian resection, pelvic and para-aortic lymph node dissection being performed. The histopathological studies confirmed the presence of an ovarian carcinosarcoma. © 2017 Romanian Society of Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
