Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Borderline ovarian tumors comprise a unique group of noninvasive ovarian neoplasms with characteristic histology and variable tumor biology that typically manifest as low-stage disease in younger women with resultant excellent prognosis. CONCLUSION. Borderline tumors are considered to be precursors of low-grade ovarian cancers. Accurate diagnosis and staging facilitate optimal patient management particularly in patients desiring to preserve fertility.
