Abstract

Gastric metastasis from ovarian cancer has rarely been reported. We herein report the case of a 64-year-old woman with gastric metastasis from ovarian cancer that was diagnosed as surgical stage IA. Diagnostic and staging laparotomy showed mucinous carcinoma of the right ovary. At one month after surgery, bone metastasis was detected via scintigraphy. On esophagogastroduodenoscopy, a 10-mm elevated lesion with ulceration on the top was seen in the stomach. The immunohistochemical analysis of biopsy specimens showed that these metastases arose from ovarian cancer. We recommend that physicians remain aware of the possibility of gastric metastasis in patients with ovarian cancer.
