Bowel obstruction resulting from colorectal and ovarian cancer is a serious and distressing complication of these malignancies. This may be caused by diffuse peritoneal carcinomatosis, bulky masses filling the pelvis and abdomen or postoperative adhesions, and should be carefully worked out by pre-operative imaging. We report the case of a small bowel obstruction and intestinal ischemia caused by a bulky (20x40 cm in diameter) cystic ovarian neoplasm that was found to be a stage IA G2 cystadenocarcinoma, successfully managed by uterus-sparing surgery.

Abstract

Bowel obstruction resulting from colorectal and ovarian cancer is a serious and distressing complication of these malignancies. This may be caused by diffuse peritoneal carcinomatosis, bulky masses filling the pelvis and abdomen or postoperative adhesions, and should be carefully worked out by pre-operative imaging. We report the case of a small bowel obstruction and intestinal ischemia caused by a bulky (20x40 cm in diameter) cystic ovarian neoplasm that was found to be a stage IA G2 cystadenocarcinoma, successfully managed by uterus-sparing surgery.
