Brenner tumors are ovarian tumors, usually benign, containing epithelium that resembles transitional epithelium. As with other epithelial tumors there exist frankly malignant tumors and tumors that display greater proliferation than the benign Brenner tumors but lack destructive infiltrative growth, and these have been designated ‘atypical proliferative’ (borderline) Brenner tumors. There have been no well-documented cases of atypical proliferative Brenner tumors that have exhibited malignant… CONTINUE READING
