Background: Ovaries are one of the commonest sites of neoplastic lesions.
Objectives: To determine the nature of various neoplastic lesions in the ovary, their frequency and distribution in a tertiary centre in south India.
Materials and Methods: This study was a two year prospective review of benign and malignant ovarian neoplasm’s received in Department of Pathology, JJM Medical College, Davangere. The clinical data of the patients were obtained from their respective files.
Statistic analysis used: Descriptive statistics.
Results: A total of 134 neoplastic lesions were seen during the study period. Benign tumors comprised 82.35% while borderline and malignant tumors comprised 3.68% and 13.97% respectively.
Conclusion: The morphologic diversity of ovarian tumors poses many challenges. A specific diagnosis can be usually made by evaluating gross specimens and routinely stained slides. In difficult cases, immunohistochemistry is often required.

Key words: Primary Ovarian neoplasms, Histomorphological study, ovary.
