In this article, we present a patient in our series with a rare presentation of her disease, metastasis in the navel, due to disseminated ovarian cancer. This clinical situation is named after an American nun. Sister María José. We describe the history of the religious, the illness of our patient and we discuss medical and pathophysiological aspects as a contribution to medical casuistry.
