Carney Complex is a genetic disease characterized by skin lentigenes and freckling and the growth of benign tumors in endocrine glands as well as cardiac myxoma. Malignant tumors in Carney's Complex are extremely rare with few other case reports. We report the rare occurrence of ovarian malignancy and thyroid carcinoma separately in 2 out of 3 family members diagnosed with Carney Complex.
