JALON MONZON, Antonio et al. Ovarian metastasus of a primary renal cell carcinoma. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.4, pp.534-537. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report one case of ovarian metastasis secondary to a renal clear cell carcinoma. Methods/Results: 52-year-old consulting for metrorrhagia with the initial diagnosis of primary ovarian carcinoma. Tumor dissemination work up tests reported a renal mass suggestive of ovarian metastasis. Surgery included hysterectomy, double annexectomy, and radical nephrectomy. Final diagnosis was renal clear cell carcinoma with ovarian metastasis. Conclusions: Metastases to the ovary pose a diagnostic problem in their interpretation, especially when they show a similar histology to the primary ovarian tumor. Due to therapeutic and prognostic implications, it is very important to differentiate if it is a primary ovarian tumor or a metastasis from a renal carcinoma.

Keywords : Ovarian metastasis; Renal carcinoma.
