Concurrent Serous Borderline Tumour in Pelvic Lymph Nodes after Radical Hysterectomy for Cervical Cancer

Endosalpingiosis is the presence of tubal epithelium outside the tube. It is linked to borderline serous tumour which is considered to be the precursor lesion of lowgrade serous cancer. However, borderline serous tumour can very rarely arise as a primary nodal neoplasm in the absence of tumour within the ovary or the tubes. We report the first case where borderline serous cancer was found incidentally in pelvic lymph nodes after radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer, probably arising from endosalpingiosis.
