Abstract: Endometrial stromal sarcomas are the rare tumor accounting for <2% of all uterine tumor. It is diagnosed mostly in 40-55 years age with slow growth with extrauterine spread in 40-50% of the cases at the time of diagnosis. In this case report, ESS was diagnosed in a 40 year old lady with pulmonary and cardiac metastasis surgically managed followed by adjuvant hormonal treatment with local recurrence treated with radiotherapy with good prognosis. ESS with distant metastasis can have better prognosis if treated surgically with complete resection and adjuvant therapy with multidisciplinary approach and regular follow up.
