Ovarian remnant syndrome/ORS is a rare gynecological complication, most often induced by difficult bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy procedures that leave ovarian residual, tissue or cells.
Residual ovarian/malignant development, cases have been reported and documented.
A total of 13 cases, documented of malignant tumors, have been described, reported to date.
Endometriosis, known to increase the risk of ovarian cancer, predisposes patients to ORS, with an incidence rate of 30 to 50% in ORS patients.
Although the true incidence of ORS still remains unknown.
