Epithelial tumors of the ovary in women less than 40 years old.


:From Jan 1, 1978 through Dec 31, 1983, 64 patients with epithelial ovarian tumors, frankly malignant or borderline, were managed at one institution. Nineteen patients (29.7%) were under age 40. The youngest patient was 19 years old. Nulliparity was present in 32% of this group of patients. Of these young patients, 58% had borderline epithelial tumors, compared to 13% of patients over 40 years of age. Twenty-one percent of the young patients were initially managed by unilateral adnexal surgery. The overall cumulative actuarial survival rate of all young patients was 93%. Young patients with epithelial ovarian tumors tend to have earlier grades of epithelial neoplasms, and survival is better than that reported for older patients with similar tumors.
