Objective: To report a case of cancer of the colon which presented as secondaries to the ovaries. Method: Case report. Summary: The case presented is that of a 39 year old female who presented with lower abdominal pain and a multinodular pelvic mass which led to an initial diagnosis of multiple uterine fibroids and pelvic inflammatory disease. The presence of a colonic mass was first suggested by ultrasound .Laparotomy revealed carcinoma of the colon with bilateral krukenberg's tumour and an insignificant fibroleiomyoma. Conclusion: This case is reported to alert practitioners that all multinodular pelvic masses should not be assumed to be multiple fibroids.
