Abstract: 

Objective: To report involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) following epithelial ovarian cancer is rare. Advances in management of ovarian cancer by use of primary surgery including abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo’oophorectomy should attain as complete a cytoreduction as possible and effective platinum-based chemotherapy have prolonged survival.
Case report: We present a case involving a 35-year-old Iranian woman diagnosed and treated for primary ovarian cancer in 2002. She underwent optimal cytoreductive surgery and chemotherapy treatment.
Eight months after the initiation of therapy, multiple brain metastases without intraperitoneal lesions were found and treated with combination chemotherapy and whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT), without evidence of recurrent disease. The patient died from disease in December 2005.
Conclusion: In a patient suffering from neoplasm that rarely metastasizes to CNS, a careful clinical examination and proper therapeutic approach including chemotherapy may lead to prolong survival.
