A 56-year-old female presented with abdominal pain, weight loss and fatigue. Computed tomography revealed an abdominopelvic mass and ascites. At surgery she had carcinomatosis and bilateral ovarian metastases arising from a cancer in a Meckel's diverticulum. Histology identified the primary to be a signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma within the Meckel's with ovarian metastases. This is the first report of a Krukenberg tumor from a Meckel's diverticulum. A discussion of malignancies within a Meckel's diverticulum is provided.
