A case is presented of pancreatic tail carcinoma metastasizing to the uterus, right ovary and right sacrouterine ligament 2.5 years after the primary tumor had been detected and treated. During explorative laparotomy, performed after 3D color Doppler ultrasonographic visualization of a suspected finding in the right adnexal region, metastatic deposits in the uterus, right ovary, right sacrouterine ligament and right ureter originating from the primary adenocarcinoma of the tail of the pancreas were detected and surgically removed.
