A curious discourse of Krukenberg tumor: a case report

Authors: Somak Das, Diwakar Sahu, Majid Wani, Prasanna Kumar Reddy


Krukenberg tumor is usually but not always a bilateral involvement of ovaries from metastatic deposit from adenocarcinoma of stomach and rarely from other gastrointestinal (GI) and non GI organs. The route of metastatsis of this rare condition is still not proven. It is still uncertain whether surgical resection of ovarian metastases and/or primary tumor could improve the outcome. We report even a rare presentation of this rare disease entity.
