Distant metastases are rare during the course of ovarian carcinoma. Ovarian epithelial adenocarcinomas rarely metastasize to the skin which is seen in less than 4% of patients. It usually presents as subcutaneous nodules and, less commonly, as inflammatory metastases which mimic cellulitis or viral or bacterial skin infections. The histology in most of the tumours is grade 1 or 2 serous papillary adenocarcinomas. The prognosis in most patients is poor, thus, palliative treatment is usually indicated. We report a patient with ovarian carcinoma and widespread zosteriform skin metastases.
