Objective: To determine the rate of occult malignancy in patients undergoing prophylactic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy in Northern Sydney. Methods: A retrospective case series of 45 consecutive patients who underwent prophylactic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy between 2004 and March 2008. Results: Five (11%) cases of occult neoplasia were found in 45 patients. This included 3 cases of micro-invasive serous carcinoma of the fallopian tube, 1 case of in situ carcinoma in the fallopian tube… Expand
