Abstract: Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecologic malignancy. Ovarian carcinomas typically metastasize to multiple sites via exfoliation, lymphatic spread or direct invasion. We present a rare case of a very late recurrence of ovarian carcinoma into the thoracic wall, heralded by thoracic pain in a patient otherwise disease-free for 23 years. This unusual and late presentation of an ovarian cancer metastasis underscores the need for continued awareness and attention to new symptoms in patients with ovarian cancer who show prolonged disease-free intervals.
