Özet

Ovarian carcinoma is a malignancy with a poor prognosis especially in patients with advanced disease. The majority of patients with ovarian serous carcinoma are diagnosed in advanced stages. Palpable extraabdominal lymphadenopathy at the time of presentation is distinctly uncommon. This case report addresses a patient with serous ovarian carcinoma presenting as left supraclavicular lymphadenopathy (Virchow's node) and no other symptoms. Not only thyroid or thoracic malignancies but also ovarian malignancies like serous ovarian carcinoma could present with a supraclavicular lymph node without any other symptoms.
