Nirali N. Thakkar | Shaila N. Shah


Abstract: Introduction Ovarian lesions manifest with a wide spectrum of clinical, morphological and histological features. The complex nature, unpredictable behavior, prognosis and controversial management make ovarian lesions a difficult problem for gynecologist hence this study was undertaken with following aims & objectives. Objectives This study is undertaken to characterize the ovarian lesions based on histopathological features and to find out the frequency of benign and malignant neoplasms with their clinicopathological correlation. Results Of the 485 cases of ovarian lesions studied, 109 cases were benign, 17 cases were malignant & 3 were borderline lesions. The tumors can occur at any age. The most common symptom was abdominal pain. Commonest benign epithelial tumors were Serous cystadenoma (55.4 %). Among primary malignant tumors clear cell carcinoma (2-3 %) was most common. Conclusion The ovary is a frequent site for primary and metastatic tumors. Due to its complex structure, primary ovarian neoplasms are of diverse histological types. Certain neoplastic lesions of the ovary frequently form a pelvic mass and potentially mimic on ovarian neoplasm. Their proper recognition is therefore important to allow appropriate therapy.
