We report a case of synchronous primary corpus and ovarian cancer (SPC) with massive ascites due to Pseudo-Meigs syndrome (PMS). A 48-year-old woman presented with complaints of abnormal genital bleeding and abdominal discomfort. Massive ascites and tumors in the endometrium and right ovary were detected. Although imaging tests showed no evidence of dissemination, and ascites cytology was negative, we performed a diagnostic laparoscopy to exclude the possibility of microdissemination because pathological findings of the corpus tumor were suggested to be so-called Type-2 endometrial cancer. Laparoscopy clearly confirmed no dissemination in the peritoneum. We ultimately diagnosed this patient with SPC with massive nonmalignant ascites due to PMS and performed an appropriate treatment. This report is the first case of SPC that developed PMS.
