Author(s): Dr. Bhaktii Kohli and Dr. Madhu Nagpal
Abstract: Krukenberg tumours are rare metastatic tumours of ovary mimicking a primary ovarian tumour. Here we have described a case where a young woman of reproductive age group presented with vague GI symptoms pertaining to an ovarian malignancy. On thorough investigation, she was diagnosed as a rare case of carcinoma rectum. The aim of this article was to give an over view of krukenberg tumour and open a new window of discussion in such overlapping cases as the management and the prognosis are different in both the scenarios.
