Abstract
Endometrial cancer is the third most common gynecologic cancer in the Korea and occurs mainly in menopausal
women. Although it can develop in young premenopausal women cancer as well, an attack in the adolescent girl
is very rare. A 13-year-old girl visited gynecology department with the complaint of abnormal uterine bleeding. An
endometrial biopsy revealed FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) grade II endometrial
adenocarcinoma. In the treatment of endometrial cancer, conservative management should be considered if the
patient is nulliparous or wants the fertility preservation. Therefore, we decided to perform a hormonal therapy and a
follow-up endometrial biopsy after progestin administration for eight months revealed no residual tumor. We report
a case of endometrial cancer occurred in a 13-year-old girl with a brief review of the literature.
