Abstract: Background: To study or analyse the histomorphological spectrum and distribution of benign and malignant ovarian neoplasms in women of different age groupsMethods: 633 cases of ovarian tumors were studied over a period of 6 years(from July 2011 to July 2017) at the Department of Pathology, SDMH. All the cases were subjected to histopathological examination and IHC as & when required.Results: In total,633 ovarian tumor specimens were examined. Out of which ,468 cases (73.9%)were benign, 23 (3.6%)were boderline and 142(22.4%)were malignant. Most of the benign tumors occurred between 31 & 40 years of age while malignant lesions presented commonly between 41 & 50 years of age. Most common histological types were serous cystadenoma (24.18%) followed by mature cystic teratoma (22.90%).The commonest benign tumor was serous cystadenoma & the commonest malignant tumor was serous cystadenocarcinoma. Serous tumors showed bilateral involvement more commonly than bilateral mucinous tumors.Conclusion-: We noted that serous cystadenoma tumors are the commonest variety of ovarian tumors. Also the age of presentation of these malignant tumors was an earlier age as compared to others. DOI: 10.21276/AWCH.1804
