Implantation subcutaneous metastases from ovarian cancer are an uncommon event in surgery, and diagnostic procedures such as laparoscopy, fine-needle biopsy, and intraperitoneal catheter access are usually used. Findings of tumor implantations are rarely reported with diagnostic imaging techniques. In this case, an infiltrative subcutaneous metastasis appeared on computed tomography 4 months after paracentesis in a patient with untreated ovarian cancer. Differential diagnostic problems are discussed.
