Solitary cerebral metastasis from ovarian carcinoma: report of 4 cases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Four cases of solitary cerebral metastasis from ovarian carcinoma are reported. Although systemic metastases from this type of tumor are frequent, they rarely affect the nervous system. From the 4 cases presented and a review of the literature, it appears that a better outcome may be obtained by a combined treatment of the cerebral metastasis, comprising surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
