OBJECTIVES Our goal was to perform an analysis of ultrasonographic characteristics and CA 125 levels in ovarian tumors of borderline malignancy. STUDY DESIGN We performed a retrospective analysis of CA 125 levels and ultrasonographic parameters in 91 patients with borderline tumors. RESULTS Serous tumors of borderline malignancy were associated with elevated CA 125 levels in 75% of patients before surgery (mean, 156 IU/mL) compared with 30% of mucinous tumors (mean, 28 IU/mL; P =.004).
