Presentation of endometrial adenocarcinoma with an ileouterine fistula as an initial symptom is exceptionally rare. Besides a report on such case we give a brief review of the literature on this subject. The case is a 77-year-old woman with an ileouterine fistula caused by endometrial adenocarcinoma. The uterus and the small bowel were removed en bloc followed by colostomy. The patient was referred for radiation therapy to be followed with six cycles of carboplatin and 5FU.
