Introduction: Bone metastases from epithelial ovarian carcinoma are rare, usually discovered postmortem. The survival of these patients is poor. Furthermore, only two cases of endometrioid ovarian carcinoma with metastasis to the skeletal structures have been described in the literature. Case report: We present the case of a 58-year-old woman with a lytic metastasis in the left iliac ramus from endometrioid ovarian carcinoma that occurred seven years after the initial diagnosis. Discussion: A review of the literature since 1966 on bone metastasis of ovarian cancer is also presented. In patients suffering from a neoplasm that rarely metastasises to bone, histological proof should be obtained to diagnose uncommon sites of disease relapse.
