Krukenberg tumour, also known as carcinoma mucocellulare, is a metastatic adenocarcinoma of ovaries from different primary tumour sites. Gastric carcinoma is most common primary tumour responsible for approximately 50% of Krukenberg tumours. Discrimination between primary ovarian cancer and metastatic tumours in the ovary is important, because their management is different. Here we present a case of female suffering from gastric carcinoma with bilateral Krukenberg tumours, diagnosed primarily by transabdominal sonography. The patient was referred to higher centre for further treatment and followed up.
