A CURIOUS DISSERTATE OF KRUKENBERG TUMOR: A CASE REPORT
Dr. Mahendra Singh, Dr. Lubna Khan and Dr. Md. Arshad Alam*
Krukenberg tumor is usually, but not always a bilateral involvement of the ovaries from metastatic deposit from adenocarcinoma of the stomach and rarely from other gastrointestinal (GI) and non GI organs. The route of metastasis of this rare condition is still not proven. It is still uncertain whether surgical resection of ovarian metastases and/or primary tumor could improve the outcome. We report even a rare presentation of this rare disease entity.
Keywords: Krukenberg Tumor; Metastatic Gastric Adenocarcinoma; Signet Ring Cell Gastric Carcinoma.
