Brain metastasis is a rare complication of ovarian cancer with only 67 well documented cases in literature. A multi-institutional study of 4027 ovarian cancer patients over 30 years identified only 32 cases while an autopsy study of ovarian cancer reported an incidence of 0.9%. Leptomeningeal metastasis is also a rare complication of ovarian cancer with only 14 cases reported by 1994.
