Abstract

Krukenberg tumor, a malignant ovarian neoplasm with well defined histological characteristics, is often bilateral and secondary to a tumor of the gastrointestinal tract. We describe the case of a 44 year old woman affected by gastric cancer, who only 10 months after such diagnosis and subsequent total gastrectomy, came to our observation with ascites and bulky peritoneal involvement. During this period the patient achieved only haematochemical dosages of tumoral markers, particularly of TAG-72 which after 180 days rose to pathological values. We remark the importance of a careful clinical control and monitoring of TAG-72 for the follow-up of gastric cancer.
