Abstract

Metastatic lesions within the ovary constitute a serious diagnostic problem in daily practice. We present an interesting case of Krukenberg tumor in a woman 13 years after partial gastrectomy due to stomach cancer. Our case confirms that every woman with history of cancer should remain under gynecological control. It is important due to a high risk of metastatic changes localized in the ovaries, regardless of the time elapsed since the diagnosis of the primary tumor.
