Abstract

Ovarian tumours are common neoplasms in females and have diverse histopathological entities as they are derived from different cells of origin. Histopathological patterns and incidence of 121 ovarian tumours were studied in Department of Pathology, JJMMC Davangere, during the period from January 2015 to December 2016. The age of the study subjects varied from 15 to 65 years, and the most common age group was between 31-40 years. Among the ovarian tumours 70.30% were benign neoplasms and 29.3 were malignant. The most common among the ovarian tumours was surface epithelial tumours which constitutes 74.4% of all ovarian tumours followed by germ cell tumours constituting 18.8% of all cases. The determination of these patterns is important for diagnosis, management and prognosis.

Keywords: Benign tumours, Germ cell tumours, Malignant tumours, Ovarian tumours, Surface epithelial tumours.
