The aim of this study was to describe the clinicopathological characteristics of ovarian Brenner tumors in Montenegro.
Twelve female patients (aged 53–80 years; mean 65 years) with ovarian Brenner tumors were selected from our histopathology records between 2010 to 2012.
Tumor size ranged between 1 and 13 cm (mean 8 cm): of these, ten were benign (83%) and two were malignant (27%). Eight tumors (67%) were found incidentally. One patient (8%) had bilateral Brenner tumors. Nine patients (75%) had coexisting tumors: five (42%) coexisting mucinous cystadenomas, one (8%) mucinous cystadenocarcinoma, two (17%) endometrial carcinomas of the endometrium, and one (8%) endometrial polyp.
Brenner tumors are most frequently solid neoplasms of the ovary, found by chance, and may be associated with other ovarian or uterine epithelial neoplasms.
