This article analyses a series of 22 confirmed cases of ovarian cancer throughout a period of 14 months (January 2018 - February 2019), in which we assessed the incidence of osseous metastases, in correlation with their histological features. This retrospective study, based on medical imaging techniques, demonstrates that bone metastases are not uncommon in ovarian cancer.
