This article was originally published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow and was migrated to Scientific Scholar after the change of Publisher.
Ovarian carcinoma usually presents at an advanced stage with diffuse intra abdominal manifestations. Inguinal lymph node metastasis is rare event in ovarian cancer. We report 7 cases who presented with inguinal lymphadenopathy as the initial manifestation between January 2014 to January 2016. All patients underwent tru-cut biopsy from inguinal area. Morphology and IHC were suggestive of ovarian origin or female genital Tract origin. Two patients underwent primary debulking surgery while four patients were managed by neo-adjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval cytoreductive surgery owing to relatively poor performance status at presentation. One patient underwent secondary debulking in which inguinal Lymph node was positive for metastatic deposits.
