Author information

  • 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Kure National Hospital.


Clinical and pathological details of 10 patients with stage I low malignant potential tumors of the ovary, between September, 1969, and February, 1988, have been reviewed. The mean age of the patients was 46.6 years. Six patients had serous and four had mucinous tumors. Of the 10 patients, five had a unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, one had a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and four a total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. The mean duration of follow-up was 12.8 years. All patients have remained alive and disease-free. A recurrence occurred in one patient who has been managed well by additional surgery. Stage I ovarian tumor of low malignant potential appears to carry a favorable prognosis.
