ABSTRACT
Brain metastasis is a rare and late manifestation of ovarian carcinoma. A 30-year-old woman initially presenting with neurologic symptoms was later found to have mucinous ovarian carcinoma. The patient had a 6 cm adnexal mass with multiple millimetric brain metastatic lesions. Following a surgical staging laparotomy procedure, the patient received brain irradiation and systemic chemotherapy.

fig1: Cranial CT scan: lesion on the right parietal lobe.

Mentions: A 30-year-old gravida 2, para 2 woman admitted to our hospital with complaints of headache, nausea, vomiting, and right-sided blurred vision. She did not report any previous medical history or malignancy. Her neurologic examination revealed a right optic disc edema suggesting a posterior orbital mass. Her cranial computerized tomography (CT) scan showed multiple lesions that are a 6 mm mass on the right parietal lobe, a 16 mm mass on the left occipital, and another 7 mm mass on the left temporal lobe (Figures 1 and 2). All the lesions were hyperintense and surrounded by edema which suggests a metastatic cancer. Her cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) also confirmed similar findings suggestive of a metastatic cancer to the brain.
