Recurrent ovarian malignancy presenting as cutaneous metastasis.

Karpate SJ, Samal SL, Jain SM - Indian J Dermatol (2009)

Bottom Line: We report the case of the woman who presented to us with clitoral nodules and skin nodules.Histopathological examination of nodules confirmed the diagnosis of metastasis of an ovarian carcinoma.Despite poor prognosis, the patient responded and survived well beyond the expected four months survival of similar cases.

ABSTRACT
Cutaneous metastasis from ovarian carcinoma is relatively uncommon in clinical practice. We report the case of the woman who presented to us with clitoral nodules and skin nodules. Histopathological examination of nodules confirmed the diagnosis of metastasis of an ovarian carcinoma. Despite poor prognosis, the patient responded and survived well beyond the expected four months survival of similar cases.

Figure 0002: Microphotograph shows the presence of metastatic adenocarcinoma beneath the normal epidermis(H and E,×200)

Mentions: Excision biopsy of clitoral nodules and fine needle aspiration cytology of skin nodules were reported as metastatic adenocarcinoma. The clitoral nodules showed sub-epithelial and overlying epidermal involvement [Figure 2]. Fine needle aspiration cytology of inguinal lymph nodes was also suggestive of metastatic adenocarcinoma. The CA125 levels were 1438.38 mIU/l.
