A 50s woman with a stomachache was referred to our hospital with diagnosed gastric cancer. Upper endoscopy showed a type 3 tumor in the lower gastric body, and CT demonstrated a pelvic tumor 10 cm in size. Laparoscopic surgery was performed; since the pelvic tumor was found to derive from the left ovary, left oophorectomy and total gastrectomy were performed. Pathological examination revealed that the ovarian tumor was a gastric cancer metastasis. Adjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 monotherapy was introduced. Four months after the operation, metastasis was suspected due to right ovary tumor edema. Due to the possibility of obtaining R0 resection and adverse events of chemotherapy, we chose right oophorectomy. Pathological examination demonstrated signet-ring cell cancer. Fourteen months after the first operation, the patient is alive with no recurrence or metastasis.
