Abstract
Ovarian cancer is one of the main gynecological malignancies including cervical cancer and endometrial cancer. Epithelial ovarian cancer generally presents with already advanced disease at the time of diagnosis and is accompanied by poor prognosis. However, stage I ovarian cancer defined as lesions confined to the ovary is usually considered to have a good prognosis, illustrated by a 5-year survival rate of greater than 70-80%. Also, recurrences tend to be late and are usually in the abdominopelvic cavity. Metastases to the skeletal structures are rare. We report a rare case of early stage IA ovarian cancer, in which the first recurrent lesion was bone metastasis.
