Abstract

We report a case of a 74-year-old female, who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingooophorectomy due to a solid-cystic tumor of the right ovary. The histopathological diagnosis revealed a borderline Brenner tumor (BBT). After 25 disease-free months the patient was admitted to a hospital because of a tumor in the postoperative scar of the abdominal wall, later diagnosed as infiltrating Brenner tumor consistent with ovarian borderline lesion. The tumor in the postoperative scar was therefore diagnosed as BBT. The article presents results of literature search on BBT in order to find characteristic features of this very rare ovarian tumor. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of subcutaneous recurrence of Brenner ovary tumor of low malignant potential.
