Introduction: Diagnosis of ovarian tumors depends basically on histopathological examination of samples. Morphological diversity of ovarian tumors poses many challenges. Awareness of occurrence and frequency of these patterns and cell types in various tumor and tumor like lesions is of paramount diagnostic importance.
Objectives: To evaluate the histopathology of lesions of ovary with regard to the standard classification of ovarian tumors and to determine the relative incidence of these histomorphological patterns among different age groups of patients.
Materials and Method: Present study was retrospective and prospective study carried out at SVS Medical College, Mahabubnagar. A Total of 7 years study was undertaken out of which 5 years of retrospective and 2 years of prospective study was carried out. Sections were stained with H & E and special stains were done wherever necessary.
Results: Out of total 330 lesions, benign ovarian tumors constituted 81.2% while malignant ovarian tumors were 16.4%. Most common benign tumor was Serous Cyst adenoma and malignant tumor was Serous Cystadenocarcinoma.
Conclusion: The Diversity of neoplasms makes it mandatory to classify the tumors accurately by histomorphological features following universally accepted classification.
