Ultrasound diagnosis of serous surface papillary borderline ovarian tumor: A case series with a review of the literature

, : Ultrasound diagnosis of serous surface papillary borderline ovarian tumor: A case series with a review of the literature. Journal of Clinical Ultrasound 43(9): 573-577

Serous surface papillary borderline ovarian tumors (SSPBOTs) are a rare morphologic variant of serous ovarian tumors that are typically confined to the ovarian surface, while the ovaries themselves tend to appear normal in size and shape. In this report, we describe the findings from five premenopausal women diagnosed with SSPBOTs, in whom ultrasound showed grossly normal ovaries that were partially or wholly covered with irregular solid tumors. In all five cases, histologic examination showed evidence of borderline serous tumors. These findings demonstrate that SSPBOTs can be diagnosed on a preoperative sonographic examination, which could facilitate conservative, fertility-sparing surgery in young women affected by this condition.
