Endometrioid carcinoma accounts for 10% of all ovarian carcinomas. We hereby present a rare case of a large mass that occurred in a 50-year-old woman with a noticeable increase in abdominal circumference, who was assessed by ultrasound and computed tomography. At histopathology examination, a diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma with a prevalent endometrioid pattern was made. Diagnostic imaging plays an important role in detection, characterization and staging of adnexal neoplastic masses. FIGO staging and cell grading are indispensable in therapeutic management.
