Ovarian carcinoma is the second most common gynecologic neoplasm, but it is still the main cause of death among the gynecologic tumors in women. Distant metastases are found in 18% of the patients with ovarian carcinoma. Skin metastases of ovarian carcinoma are very rare. It has been reported in almost 4% and in some cases as the first manifestation of the disease. Skin metastases have been described as a late manifestation during the natural history of the disease, reporting an average of 4 month survival after the finding of skin lesions. In this paper a case of a patient with this type of metastatic dissemination on skin is reported, including a bibliographic review of the literature.
