Abstract

Metastases of ovarian carcinoma to the breast and axillary lymph nodes occur rarely. Secondary breast involvement from an epithelial ovarian cancer means dissemination of the disease and predicts very poor prognosis. We report 59-years-old patient, who had epithelial ovarian cancer and who developed metastases to the breast and axillary lymph nodes. The second part of the article is a short review of the literature.
