Abstract

The association between neoplastic disease and thromboembolic disorders was first recognized by Trousseau in 1865. Blood coagulation abnormalities have been reported in the majority of patients with cancer, including those with ovarian carcinoma. However, Trousseau's syndrome (TS) has rarely been reported in women with ovarian carcinoma. We herein report a case series of TS, notably in the brain, in association with gynecological malignant disease, and emphasize the difficulties associated with the management of these thromboembolic effects. The aim of this study was to present our experience with 5 TS patients whose condition was effectively controlled through treatment of the primary malignant disease. Therefore, we suggest that patients with TS may be cured by tumor resection, even if they have severe thromboembolic disease, such as cerebral or pulmonary infarction.
