Abstract

Objective: The objective of the study was to study and analyze the various histopathological pattern and age distribution of ovarian neoplasms.
Materials and Methods: This is a study of ovarian neoplasm at tertiary care hospital over a period of 5 years. A total of 308 ovarian lesions were studied. Specimens were received in formalin, and hematoxylin and eosin stained slides were examined.
Results: Out of 308 total ovarian lesions studied, 100 (32.46%) were found neoplastic lesions. Out of which 88% were benign, 4% borderline and 8% were malignant. Except four cases, all 96 cases were unilateral neoplasms. Benign neoplasms were more common than borderline and malignant neoplasms in all age groups.
Conclusion: All kind of neoplastic lesions were most common in 20–59 years of age. Mature cystic teratoma was the most frequent neoplasm observed.
