The occurrence of two primary tumors simultaneously is relatively common. However, the occurrence of three kinds of gynecological tumors simultaneously is extremely rare. Here we presented a 79-year-old woman who had simultaneously three primary gynecological tumors which were relatively uncommon. Those tumors were myxoid leiomyosarcoma and endometrial mucinous adenocarcinoma in the uterus and a Leydig cell tumor in the right ovary. Uterine myxoid leiomyosarcoma is a very rare and aggressive variant of uterine sarcoma despite of its minimal even no atypia and a little mitotic activity. Mucinous endometrial adenocarcinoma is also a rare subtype which comprise only 0.6-5% of uterine cancers. Leydig cell tumor is a very rare ovarian tumor which is composed entirely or predominantly of Leydig cell.
