Abstract

The cases of two patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma who had been treated with surgery and cisplatin-containing combination chemotherapy and had developed brain metastases are described. Modern protocols for management of advanced-stage epithelial ovarian carcinoma have resulted in prolonging the lives of the patients sufficiently for central nervous system metastases to become apparent and possible resistence of the 'blood brain' barrier to the currently used chemotherapeutic agents may have left the CNS 'unprotected' from metastases.
