ABSTRACT
Introduction: Ovarian lesions are commonly encountered and are complex in gynecological practice which can be either benign, borderline or malignant which constitutes a high fatality rate and it cannot be categorized clinico - radiologically. Definite diagnosis is of great importance for therapeutic and prognostic purposes. Histopathology gives accurate diagnosis in most of the cases. Aims: To study the histopathological pattern of ovarian lesions in different age group and also to analyse the associated clinical and radiological findings.
Methods: A retrospective study conducted on 69 cases of ovarian lesions reported from June 2016–May 2019 in pathology department at Sri Manakula Vinayagar medical college and hospital, Puducherry
Results: Out of sixty nine ovarian lesions, 24 were non neoplastic and 45 were neoplastic lesions. Out of the neoplastic lesions 39 were benign and 6 were malignant. Among non-neoplastic lesions follicular cyst 12 was the most common lesion followed by endometriotic cysts 10. The majority of the cases were seen in the age group of 41-50 years.
Conclusion: Most ovarian lesions were common in the age group 20-50 years. Neoplastic ovarian lesions are more common than non-neoplastic lesion.
