A Case Report: Metastasis of Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer in Morrison’s Pouch as Differential Diagnosis to Exophytic Kidney Tumor

 Abstract
A 62-year-old woman with a history of curatively treated mucinous ovarian cancer, presented with dyspnea, anorexia and right-upper-quadrant pain at consultation with her general practitioner. A CT scan revealed several lymph node metastases in lungs and abdomen as well as a tumor in Morrison’s pouch and biopsy revealed renal cell carcinoma. Therefore, she was referred to Department of Urology. The multidisciplinary team could not immediately reject that there could be an exophytic tumor in the right kidney but discrepancy between histology and imaging, led to several biopsies including laparoscopic procedure. Re-examination of the primary ovarian cancer showed that one percent was classified as clear cell carcinoma. The final diagnose was metastatic clear cell ovarian carcinoma. The patient was terminal and suffered of cachexia and pleural effusion. The patient deceased four months after first consultation.
