Abstract

Two cases of primary paraovarian-origin serous cystadenocarcinoma, one invasive and one of low malignant potential, are presented. Both were diagnosed in postmenopausal women and were initially treated surgically. As of this writing, both women have survived 48 months past their initial diagnosis and have no clinically detectable disease. Clinical aspects and management problems of this fairly recently identified and rare entity are discussed and the literature on primary paraovarian malignant epithelial tumors is reviewed.
