Reference work entry


Tumors that spread to the ovary from elsewhere are an important group of ovarian neoplasms because the misinterpretation of cases encountered as surgical pathology specimens may have significant adverse consequences for the patient. The spread may be from adjacent sites by direct local extension or from distant extragenital sites [27, 44, 61, 66, 90, 94, 111, 145, 152, 155, 161, 162]. The latter tumors are truly metastatic, whereas the designation “metastatic” is sometimes not used for those that are secondary from local sites. However, for simplicity, this discussion includes spread to the ovary from all sites.
