Most cases of leptomeningeal metastasis (LM) arise from solid tumors, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, or malignant melanoma. LM arising from gynecological cancers are extremely rare. Longer survival owing to recent advances in chemotherapy and other treatments has contributed to the increased frequency of gynecological cancers metastasizing to the central nervous system (CNS). Detailed information regarding LM is scarce; therefore, we conducted a study concerning LM arising from primary gynecological cancers.
