The incidence of clinically detectable parenchymal liver metastases in patients with recurrent ovarian carcinoma has been infre­quently reported, but autopsy findings indicate that they are the second most common site of distant metastases in patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma. The case of a 58-year-old patient who developed parenchymal liver metastases as the first site of recur­rent ovarian carcinoma is presented. The different spreading routes of this malignancy, as well as a review of the incidence of liver metastases are discussed.
