Background: Bilateral mature cystic teratomas are seen in only 10% of cases. Furthermore, the occurrence of endometrial cancer in this setting is extremely rare. Case: A 62-year-old woman presented with postmenopausal bleeding. On transvaginal ultrasound, bilateral complex ovarian masses, that raised suspicion of dermoid cysts with hypoechoic endometrial collection, were detected. Endometrial sampling showed inflammatory changes, and her Papanicolaou smear was normal. Her CA-125 was normal. During exploratory laparotomy, bilateral dermoid cysts of 7 × 7 cm were detected along with thickened endometrium. Results: Final histopathologic diagnosis confirmed benign mature cystic teratomas coexisting with moderately differentiated endometrial cancer, with less than half thickness of myometrial invasion. Conclusions: Bilateral mature cystic teratomas and endometrial cancer is an incidental finding. In all cases of postmenopausal bleeding with bilateral dermoid cysts, a strong suspicion of endometrial cancer must be kept in mind. The combination of these two conditions is unique, and, to the best of the current authors' knowledge, has not been reported previously in the English-language medical literature. © Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. 2017.
