Abstract

Introduction: To compare the frozen section results with definitive histopathological results of ovarian
tumors diagnosed intra operatively at Saveetha medical college and hospital, Chennai.
Materials and Methods: In this study we compared the results of 30 cases of frozen histology with
histopathological diagnosis at the department of pathology , Saveetha medical college and hospital, Chennai
during July 2017-July 2018.
Results: A total of 30 cases were studied correlating the histopathological and frozen diagnosis of ovarian
carcinoma. Out of which the diagnosis of 28 cases were concordant whereas diagnosis of 2 cases were
discordant.
Conclusion: The frozen section is a very accurate method and it provides rapid results. Out of the 30
cases, 2 cases were discordant, which might have resulted due to any sampling errors, technical problem or
intraoperative error. Appropriate measures should be taken to reduce error rates.
