The ovarian remnant syndrome represents the development of symptoms due to residual ovarian tissue after bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Treatment generally consists of surgical resection but recurrence after resection is common. A case is reported in which a postoperative recurrent ovarian remnant was successfully managed by using a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone agonist. In addition, this report includes a survey of gynecologists to determine the frequency of this syndrome and of ureteral involvement.
