DOI : 10.5505/tjo.2019.2069 Ovarian cancer is one of the most aggressive and frequent gynecological cancers. Despite an aggressive approach; patients often recur. The treatment options at recurrence are limited, although additional systemic therapy is usually administered. In the recent era, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to the area(s) of the oligo-metastatic re-current disease can provide adequate tumor response with good local control. Here, we report a case of 48 years old female, diagnosed with recurrent metastatic ovarian malignancy, successfully treated with the use of SBRT. SBRT is well tolerated with low toxicity rates and effective means of oligo-metastasis control. Keywords : Ovarian cancer; oligo-metastasis; stereotactic body radiotherapy
