Diagnosis of a gynecologic malignancy during cesarean section is quite rare. We report a case of a 39-year-old, nulliparous woman who underwent elective cesarean section during which a paratubal cyst was noticed and removed. The pathology revealed serous borderline tumor. Subsequent staging laparotomy was done 23 days after cesarean section. She was diagnosed with stage IC paratubal serous borderline tumor and underwent no further therapy. For the time being 15 months have passed from the staging laparotomy and she is currently free of disease recurrence. This case presented the importance of the evaluation of adnexa during cesarean section together with a short review of the literature on the rare paratubal borderline tumors and the role of fertility-sparing, conservative surgery in their management.
