Abstract: The presence of abdominoperitoneal tuberculosis (APTB) complicates the diagnosis, staging and management of endometrial cancer. Lymph node involvement in APTB may mimic metastatic lymphadenopathy in patients with endometrial cancer. To our knowledge, there have only been 2 previous case reports on this topic. We will describe 3 cases of endometrial cancer co-existing with APTB. The 1st case is a 57-year-old female who underwent elective total laparoscopic hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TLHBSO) and bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection (PLND). The final diagnosis is Stage 3C1 endometrial endometroid carcinoma with mucinous differentiation. The 2nd case is a 70-year-old female with who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (TAHBSO) and PLND. The final diagnosis is a Stage 1A endometrioid adenocarcinoma. The 3rd case is a 63-year-old female who underwent TAHBSO and PLND and the final diagnosis was a mixed high-grade serous (90%) and endometrioid (10%) carcinoma of the endometrium. In these cases, the importance of surgical staging is emphasised to accurately stage endometrial cancer. Moreover, thorough peri-operative optimisations by a multi-disciplinary team are essential to improve the outcomes of surgery. © 2021 The Authors
