Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Tracheal metastasis is a rare manifestation of recurrent ovarian cancer. CASE: We describe tracheal metastasis causing increasing respiratory distress in a patient with progressive stage IIIc undifferentiated serous-papillary cancer involving the peritoneum and pleura and the retroperitoneal, diaphragmatic, parahilar, mediastinal, pretracheal, paratracheal, and supraclavicular lymph nodes. The situation necessitated rapid endoscopic laser ablation. CONCLUSION: Malignant tracheal obstruction should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with advanced ovarian cancer and respiratory distress.
