Metastatic Tumors of the Ovary

  • Robert H. Young
  • Robert E. Scully


Metastatic tumors are an important group of ovarian neoplasms because the misinterpretation of those cases encountered as surgical pathology specimens may have important adverse consequences for the patient. Tumors may metastasize to the ovary from numerous organs and tissues outside the female genital tract but neoplasms arising in the intestines, stomach, and breast and hematopoietic tumors (rare examples of which are also primary in the ovary) are the most common forms encountered by the pathologist.* Hematopoietic tumors are discussed in Chapter 21 (Nonspecific Tumors of the Ovary, Including Mesenchymal Tumors and Malignant Lymphoma), and will not be considered further here. Tumors that extend to the ovary directly from adjacent organs or tissues also are included in the broad category of secondary tumors; determination of the origin of the tumor in such cases may be impossible when both ovarian and extraovarian involvement is extensive.
