Ovarian cancer is one of the most frequently occurring genital malign disorders in women and contributes hugely to cancer-caused mortality. In the search for risk factors for ovarian cancer interest has increasingly focused on endometriosis and the rare ovarian remnant syndrome. We report on a case of a 49-year-old patient with ovarian cancer after bilateral salpingoovariectomy and discuss possible causal factors.
