Brenner tumors (BTs) are rare ovarian tumors which are a part of the epithelial stromal tumor group of ovarian neoplasms. Most of the BTs are benign and usually asymptomatic. BTs stand for the 1.4-2.5% of ovarian tumors. The benign ones are the most frequent, representing about 95%, the borderline represent about 5%, and the malignant ones less than 1%. Borderline BTs are usually bigger than benign BTs and individuals typically represent with symptoms related with a unilateral ovarian mass. We present the case of a 53-year patient who was diagnosed with right ovary of borderline BT ovarian tumor. The surgical treatment led to a complete cure of the patient, so that the yearly ultrasound reexamination did not trace the presence of any tumoral relapse.
