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.

fig3: Pelvic MRI: the right adnexal mass.

Mentions: For identification of the primary malignancy, she initially underwent thoracic and abdominopelvic CT. Upper abdominal CT scan revealed indistinctly bordered and heterogeneously contrast accumulating multiple lesions less than 15 mm in the liver. There was a pelvic tumor of 62 × 53 mm sized and solid cystic in nature located in the right adnexa. The pelvic mass was round shaped and thin capsulated that contains irregular septations and a solid component of 38 × 24 mm on MRI scan (Figure 3). The right pelvic lymph nodes were slightly enlarged. No ascites were detected in the pelvic cavity. The endoscopic evaluation of the upper and the lower gastrointestinal tract and the ultrasonographic evaluation of the breast was found to be normal. The Pap test was reported to be negative for malignancy. Her serum tumor marker levels (CA 125, CA 15-3, CA 19-9, CEA, and AFP) were within normal limits.
