Abstract

Serous borderline tumors are rare neoplasms. Herein we report our conservative approach, whose rationale is neoplasm low-malignant potential. Tumor was removed under general anesthesia, and frozen section ruled out a germinal malignancy or a stromal tumor such as rhabdomyosarcoma. Ultrasound evaluation was initially performed every 3 months during the first 2 years, every 6 months during the next 3 years, and annually thereafter. After 8 years, the patient has not experienced any relapse, either clinical or ultrasonographical. In our opinion, conservative approach, whose final decision relies on intraoperative frozen section, represents the best option and does not jeopardize long-term oncological outcome.
