The ovaries are common sites for metastatic disease, however, the most frequent ones are carcinomas. Metastatic sarcomas are very rare in ovary and most of them arise from genital tract. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman with subcutaneous angiosarcoma who had metastatic disease to the ovary resulting in acute abdominal pain. Discussion of the case and a review of the literature are presented.
