Cutaneous involvement is generally unusual for metastases in a variety of primary malignancies including patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer. We report the rare observance of subcutaneous lesions from an aggressive ovarian primary carcinoma with unusual uptake of 99mTc-MDP on a tomographic whole-body bone scan without osseous metastatic lesions or uptake. The findings were correlated with cross-sectional imaging in addition to histological analysis.
