Krukenberg tumor of ovary is a rare clinical entity and accounts for 1-2% of all ovarian tumor. Stomach is most common primary site but other organs can also serve as a primary site. Accurate diagnosis of krukenberg tumor requires thorough endoscopic and histopathological examination to exclude primary tumor.
32 years old female presented with AUB for 2 months and history of jejunum carcinoma which was an incidental finding on biopsy after a surgery for intestinal obstruction. Endometrial biopsy showed endometrial carcinoma of mucin secreting signet ring type. CECT showed bilateral adnexal masses. Staging laparotomy was planned but due to dense adhesion and bladder and bowel infiltration optimal debulking could not be done and tumor was removed as much as possible. Patient was reffered for chemotherapy.
Krukenberg tumor is uncommon metastatic signet ring cell adenocarcinoma of ovary with transcoelomic spread. It is essential to rule out other ovarian malignancy to avoid the misdiagnosis and management of krukenberg tumor.
