Paraovarian cysts arise in the mesosalpinx, between the ovarian hilum and the fallopian tube. Clinical significance of paraovarian tumors is considerably less frequent than ovarian tumors, and malignant paraovarian lesions are exceedingly rare. Paraovarian carcinomas or borderline malignancy mostly occur in young women. Abdominal enlargement and pelvic pain are the usual complaints. Usually they have a capsule, are unilateral and are connected to the broad ligament. Little is known about the biological behavior of the paraovarian borderline malignancies, since these lesions are so rare. The appropriate therapy for this unusual lesion have not been fully defined. We had experienced a case of papillary serous adenocarcinoma of borderline malignancy and report this case with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Paraovarian cysts, Borderline malignancy
