In 30% cases an association with another epithelial ovarian neoplasm is observed. They are usually diagnosed incidentally in pathologic examination.
This case report emphasis on the decision to perform an elective bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy (BSO) at the time of a hysterectomy for a benign condition in postmenopausal women.
