They are divided into three different categories: benign, borderline and malignant tumors. Case Study: Here, the case of 63 year old female post - menopausal P2L2 with Acute Kidney Injury and Hypokalemia is reported who presented with a complain of abdominal pain and increasing abdominal girth since last 5 months. An Ultrasonography and plain high resolution CT study of abdomen and pelvis showed a presence of left ovarian mass.
