In short


  • Brenner tumors are a subtype of the transitional cell neoplasms of the ovary and account for about 2% of ovarian neoplasms.
  • Most Brenner tumors are solid, but some contain small or large cystic areas which may show mucinous differentiation.
  • The cell nests show a frequent tendency toward central cystic degeneration, producing a superficial resemblance to a follicle.
  • Granulosa cell tumors, unlike Brenner tumors, are negative for keratin proteins.
  • During CT scanning, Brenner tumors characteristically demonstrate a finding of extensive amorphous calcification within the solid components of the ovarian mass.
