Borderline ovarian tumors: key points and workshop summary

Hum Pathol. 2004 Aug;35(8):910-7. doi: 10.1016/j.humpath.2004.03.003.


This article documents major points of agreement and disagreement among experts invited to participate in a Borderline Ovarian Tumor Workshop held in Bethesda, MD, on August 27-28, 2003. It is suggested that controversies related to the diagnosis and management of these tumors are often related to lack of data in the literature (small numbers of cases, unreported or unclear criteria for diagnosis and follow-up, insufficient length of follow-up, etc), and specific recommendations are made for further investigation and for reporting of data in future studies.
