Abstract : Ovarian metastasis is common in patients with advanced breast cancer. Metastatic breast carcinoma can mimic a primary ovarian carcinoma with similar features making it difficult to differentiate between primary and secondary ovarian carcinomas. PAX8 and Gross Cystic Disease Fluid Protein-15(GCDFP-15) can be used to differentiate primary ovarian tumor from metastatic breast carcinoma to ovary.
