    Ovarian torsion can be associated with various pathophysiological factors. Most commonly, benign epithelial ovarian tumours present with torsion. We present an unusual case of mixed malignant epithelial ovarian tumour with a predominant component of high-grade serous cystadenocarcinoma (85%) and...

    Bilateral ovarian tumour in a girl presents the dilemma of conservative versus aggressive approach towards these tumours. When faced with suspicious tumour and complete replacement of the ovaries bilaterally, bilateral oophorectomy is a viable option, though the certain possibility of...

  • Serum CA19.9 levels are commonly elevated in primary ovarian mucinous tumours but cannot be used to predict the histological subtype.  // Journal of Clinical Pathology;Feb2010, Vol. 63 Issue 2, p169 

    The article discusses a study that correlated the serum CA19.9 level with the histological features in primary ovarian mucinous neoplasms. It reveals that a significant percentage of primary ovarian mucinous tumours have elevated serum CA19.9 levels. No association was found between the serum...

    Recent years have seen a dramatic change in the pathological approach to ovarian mucinous neoplasms. A substantial proportion of tumours previously considered to be ovarian primaries actually represent secondary ovarian involvement by tumours elsewhere in the body. Two major categories of tumour...
