Second primary malignant neoplasm in patient with ovarian cancer – case report
Languages of publication
Increase in the occurrence of multiple primary malignant tumours is associated with significant extention of survival rate among patients treated for malignant neoplasm. Treatment of multiple primary malignant tumours demands precise clinical evaluation, imaging, laboratory diagnostics and histopathological evaluation of the lesion. In the presented case immunohistochemical staining of lymphatic metastasis from nasopharyngeal carcinoma was mimicking distant metastasis from poorly differentiated ovarian cancer. It impeded histopathological diagnosis and required additional imaging enriched by PET-CT, which allowed the visualization of the second tumor.
