Thirty three cases of metastatic ovarian carcinoma were analysed cilincopathologically. The patient's age ranged from 20 to 68 years, the average being 44.3. Most ovarian tumors were bilateral and asymmertically enlarged, firm and occsaionally multicystic. Histologic examination revealed adenocarcinoma in 31 cases, of which Krukenberg tumors in 14; squamous cell carcinoma in 2. The most common primary site was gasrtointestinal(75.8%), followed by genital, breast and gallbaldder. Most Krukenberg tumors were originated from poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of stomach. The ovarian and primary carcinomas were synchronously diagnosed in 15 cases, while in 3 cases the primary carcinoma was not round until the ovarian tumor had been removed.
