Abstract

Abstract The ovary is a relatively frequent site of metastasis from malignant neoplasia arising elsewhere in the body, the majority of these originating from the GI tract. The best known tumor of this type is signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma (Krukenberg tumor) of gastric origin. The gall bladder and bile ducts are rare sources of these metastases. Asymptomatic carcinoma of the cystic duct metastasizing to the ovary is extremely rare. We are reporting such a case in which the patient presented with no GI or hepatic symptoms. The cystic duct carcinoma was an incidental finding from routine and careful examination of the abdominal viscera.
