Abstract
A 43-year old woman, operated on for ovarian clear cell carcinoma (stage II c) four years previously was found to have a small mass under the abdominal wall in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen. Neither diagnostic imagin g (ultrasonography and MRI) nor tumor markers showed any evidence of recurr ence, but positron emission tomography revealed a hot spot area, and it was diagnosed as recurrence of the ovarian carcinoma. The postoperative histop athological diagnosis was metastasis of ovarian carcinoma to the peritoneal wall.
