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 neoplasmâ€™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.
