Abstract

Ovarian transposition into the uterine cavity to restore fertility, the so-called Estes operation, has rarely been performed worldwide. Malignant degeneration of such transposed ovaries has never been reported in the literature. We present a case of a borderline tumour arising in a transposed ovary after an Estes operation.
