Abstract

A case is presented of rectal carcinoma in which during staging by endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) a second large extrarectal mass was seen not otherwise visualized on computer tomograghy (CT) that was a solitary ovarian metastasis. The surgeon was alerted to the EUS finding prior to the planned laparoscopic colectomy. On retrospective review of the CT pelvis after surgery, the radiologist could still not diagnose the ovarian lesion separated from the primary rectal tumor due to their close proximity. However, on EUS we were able to clearly see on real-time imaging that there was a distinct peri-rectal mass apart from the primary rectal tumor.
