In a woman at the age of 30, carcinoma of the endometrium was diagnosed after hysteroscopic polypectomy. Her family history fulfilled Bethesda diagnostic criteria for Lynch syndrome or hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer.

In this report, we suggest that individual approach should be considered in young women with low-grade endometrial carcinoma, positive family history, and unfulfilled motherhood.
