Abstract

We reported a case of metastatic ovarian tumor with severe edema in a 61-year-old woman. MRI showed a markedly hyperintense lower abdominal mass on T2-weighted images. The mass was little enhanced. At operation a metastatic right ovarian tumor with severe edema was shown. Torsion was not found. Pathological findings showed proliferation of signet ring cells in the tumor. Severe edema of the ovarian tumor was thought to be the result from interference with venous and lymphatic drainage due to partial or intermittent torsion of the tumor.
