High grade endometrial stromal sarcoma is a rare endometrial malignancy. This case report is aimed to present a case of high grade endometrial stromal sarcoma because of its rarity. This report is peculiar due to the metastatic            involvement of ovary and retroperitoneal nodes in high grade endometrial stromal sarcoma. Surgical staging may be          necessary in uterine sarcomas similar to that done in           endometrial carcinoma.
