Abstract

A case of ovarian carcinoma which has been followed up for more than 28 years after the initial ovarian resection is reported. A 50-year-old woman came forward with a metastatic esophageal tumor 16 years after a salpingo-oophorectomy for ovarian carcinoma. After irradiation with a dose of 3090 cGy, an esophagectomy and a partial resection of the directly invaded pericardium was successfully performed. Ten years later, progressive dyspnea due to a total collapse of the right lung developed. The right main stem bronchus was almost occluded by an endobronchial tumor, contiguous with the recurrent mass at the previous resectional margin. A right pneumonectomy and a combined resection of the pericardium and left atrium were performed. The patient has been followed up for further two years, and no signs of recurrence are evident. In spite of distant thoracic involvement and its local regrowth, the patient has survived for 28 years following her initial resection with surgical interventions.
