Abstract

Krukenberg tumor, which can account for 30-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries, arises in the ovarian stroma and is usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, especially from the stomach. The pathognomonic feature is the presence of signet ring cells, which may be arranged in acini or appear as individual cells. We experienced a Krukenberg tumor which was bilateral and associated with left ovarian dermoid cyst. This patient was treated for a primary gastric carcinoma(Stage II) about 3 years ago. After bilateral salpingoophorectomy, she received adjuvant chemotherapy. But, she died about fow months after operation.
