We present a case history of a woman who developed dermatomyositis following the diagnosis of stage IV ovarian cancer. Dermatomyositis is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome that usually precedes the diagnosis of ovarian cancer by several months or years. Ours is the fifth reported case of dermatomyositis after an established diagnosis of ovarian cancer in the literature.
