Abstract
With the exception of choriocarcinoma, the central nervous system (CNS) is rarely associated with metastases from gynecological malignancy. Cerebral involvement in ovarian carcinoma is generally regarded as occurring in 1% of cases. Overall incidence of cerebellar metestases is 27% of CNS metastases. However higher rates have been reported following initial platinum-based chemotherapy. We experienced a cerebellar metastatic cancer patient treated with craniectomy and radiation therapy. So we report the case with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Cerebellar metastases, Ovarian carcinoma
