Abstract

CRP serum levels independently predicted the presence of BTO and EOC in patients with suspicious adnexal masses. CRP serum levels seem to be of additional value to CA-125 in the preoperative differential diagnosis of adnexal masses and might be particularly in combination with CA-125 clinically useful.
