Dough adnexal complicated in woman postmenopausal: ovarian Tumor Brenner left twisted Case Report And Review. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2017, vol.20, n.1, pp.38-43. ISSN 1817-7433.

The adnexal tumors represent a frequent and important gynecological pathology. The Brenner tumor is a rare neoplasm constituting 1.5-2.5% of all ovarian neoplasms. A 62-year-old female patient is presents intense pain in the left flank, and complementary studies are indicated, including abdominal ultrasound that reports mass of mixed content. Exploratory laparotomy is performed, left ovary tumor is twisted, and left oophorectomy is performed. Subsequently, biopsy study reports diagnosis of Brenner's tumor. Adnexal tumors can be a real challenge, requiring accurate diagnosis and proper management. It is fundamental to suspect malignancy.The present case manifested numerous traits of malignancy, being fortuitously benign.We opted for exploratory laparotomy surgery plus left oophorectomy, a rather controversial decision due to the lack of an anatomopathological diagnosis, but necessary due to the complicated presentation of the picture.

Keywords : Adnexal mass; brenner tumor; postmenopausal woman.
