Abstract

•Conventional definitions of STIC do not capture all lesions associated with serous neoplasia and the presence of abnormal p53 expression may be helpful diagnostically.•The management of STICs and tubal atypias remain uncertain.•The POINT Project is a registry set up to address this critical gap in knowledge.
