A case of a solitary metastasis on the surface of the liver by dissemination after resection of an ovarian tumor

A case of a solitary metastasis on the surface of the liver by dissemination after resection of an ovarian tumor

Gan No Rinsho. Japan Journal of Cancer Clinics 33(11): 1374-1378

A 46-year-old woman underwent total hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy for a granulosa cell tumor of the ovary ten years ago. Six years later, she underwent a resection of the retroperitoneal tumor because of a retroperitoneal metastases of the ovarian tumor. Four years after, a second operation was carried out for a solitary metastasis on the surface of the liver of the right subphrenic space. It proved to be a disseminated metastasis from the ovarian tumor. The angiography showed that the tumor was being fed by the hepatic artery and, one month later, the tumor was resected. Such a case history of a disseminated solitary metastasis is very rare and seldom reported in the literature.
