Abstract 

We report a case of ovarian cancer with metastasis to both breasts and axillary lymph nodes and the vaginal cuff. A 41-year-old previously hysterectomized women presented with pelvic mass and malignant pleural effusion. During the courses of chemotherapy; bilateral breast nodules, and bilateral axillary lymphadenopathies and a nodule in the vaginal cuff were identified. The biopsy of both breasts, axillary lymph nodes and the nodule in the vaginal cuff revealed papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma. Immunohistochemical staining of breast specimens were positive for ovarian tumor marker CA-125.
