Ultrasound Diagnosis of Serous Surface Papillary Borderline Ovarian Tumor: A Case Series with a Review of the Literature

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Serous surface papillary borderline ovar-ian 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 premeno-pausal 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 diag-nosed on a preoperative sonographic examination, which could facilitate conservative, fertility-sparing surgery in young women affected by this condition
