 Common sites for synchronous metastases from colorectal cancer include the liver, lung, peritoneum, bone and brain (1). The frequency of ovarian metastasis from colorectal cancer is 1.6‑6.4%, however, this type of metastasis is difficult to distinguish from primary ovarian neoplasms (2‑5).
 Both patients recovered well and are currently undergoing regular follow‑up examinations. The observations from the two cases indicate that ovarian metastases of primary colorectal cancer may present as pelvic tumors and, thus, preoperative examination of the gastrointestinal tract is required.
