Introduction Borderline ovarian tumors represent 10–20% of all epithelial ovarian tumors and one third of patients present younger than 40. We present an updated audit at the Royal Womens’ Hospital, reviewing all cases since 1982, with particular focus on outcomes in patients who undergo fertility preserving management; rates, timing and detection of recurrence; duration and frequency of follow-up and rates of progression to cancer.

Single (tertiary) instituion retrospective audit Data were collected from the GEMMA and EPIC databases. Archived pathology reports were re-reviewed in cases where recurrence occured. Ethics approval was obtained AQA21/15.

Results Mean age at diagnosis was 46. Correlation of frozen section results to final pathology was correct or at least queried in 109/151 cases (72%), 54 (62%) in MBOT and 55 (92%) in SBOT.
