Benign endometroid cystadenofibroma of the ovary is a rare tumour with few reported cases. The association of endometroid cystadenofibroma with endometrial cystic glandular hyperplasia has not been previously reported to authors’ knowledge. We are reporting a 75-year-old postmenopausal woman who presented with a large abdominopelvic mass corresponding to 30 weeks size gravid uterus and postmenopausal bleeding. She has a well-oestrogenised vagina. Ultrasound pelvis revealed a large cystic mass extending from pelvis to epigastrium with no solid component and few incomplete septations and no internal echoes. MRI findings showed mainly cystic component with few moderately enhancing, fine, incomplete septa. Endometrial aspiration reported histopathology of cystic glandular hyperplasia without atypia. Serum oestrogen level reported to be high (210 pg/mL). Hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed. Histopathology of the specimen revealed benign endometroid cystadenofibroma. She remained asymptomatic and disease free during her 6-month follow-up.
