Abstract: Background: The aim of the study was to identify the pattern of pathologies involving ovarian mass which were received for histopathological evaluation at tertiary hospital in ahmedabad, Gujarat, India during the period January 2019 to December 2021. Aim: To study the Histopathological lesions of ovary and determine its frequency, histological features and age wise incidence. Materials and Methods: The data pertaining to samples of ovarian lesions received for histopathological evaluation at the laboratory of tertiary care hospital ahmedabad from January 2019 to December 2021, were analyzed to determine the pattern of pathologies diagnosed during this evaluation. Results: Non-neoplastic lesions of the ovary constituted 53 % of all cases; follicular cysts constituted 47% of these lesions. Malignant lesions constituted only 4.0% of all pathologies. Serous cystadenoma of the ovary constituted predominant neoplastic lesion diagnosed. Most patients were in 3rd to 6th decades of life.96.8% of the lesions were unilateral. The majority of ovarian lesions were benign and unilateral. Conclusions: Ovarian lesions both non neoplastic and neoplastic include a variety of morphological features and show a particular age wise incidence.
