Histopathological analysis of ovarian lesions in a tertiary care centre
Keywords:Cystadenofibroma, Hematoxylin, Neoplastic
Background: The occurrence of functional or benign cysts and tumors are quite common in the ovaries. The present study assessed histopathology of ovarian lesions. Materials & Methods: 96 ovarian masses specimens obtained from gynaecological department were studied. Microsections of 5 microns thickness were taken onto glass slides and stained by standard Hematoxylin and Eosin stains. Slides were studied and classified based on WHO guidelines. Results: Age group 21-30 years comprised of 16, 31-40 years 36, 41-50 years 34 and 51-60 years 10 lesions. There were 46 non- neoplastic lesions, 40 benign neoplastic and 10 malignant neoplastic lesions. Common non- neoplastic lesions were follicular cyst in 20, inclusion cyst in 4, corpus luteum cyst in 12, ectopic pregnancy in 3, twisted cyst in 2, endometriosis in 2 and edema of ovary in 3 cases. Common non- neoplastic lesions comprised of fibroma in 20, fibrothecoma in 5, mucinous cystadenoma in 8, serous cystadenoma in 3, mature cystic teratoma in 2 and serous cystadenofibroma in 2 cases. The difference found to be significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Common non- neoplastic lesions were follicular cyst, corpus luteum cyst and common benign neoplastic lesions comprised of fibroma and mucinous cystadenoma. Common malignant neoplastic lesions were granulosa cell tumor and papillary serous cystadenoma.
