Borderline Ovarian tumors are tumors of uncertain malignant potential. They have favour able prognosis. They occur in younger women and present at an early stage. They are difficult to diagnose preoperatively as macroscopic picture is a combination of benign and invasive ovarian tumors. Over the years surgical treatment has changed from radical to conservative approach without overlooking oncologic safety. Follows up is essential. Prolonged follow up (>10 yrs) is required because of later recurrences. Special attention is to be paid to the conserved ovary in follow up.
