Two hundred and thirty three cases of ovarian tumours and tumour like lesions were studied. Of these 233 cases, 96 cases were of ovarian tumours and 137 were tumour like lesions of the ovary. Of the 96 cases of ovarian tumours, 72.9% were benign, 4.1% were borderline and 22.9% were malignant. Histologically surface epithelial tumours were the commonest (48.8%) followed by germ cell tumours (23.9%), sex cord stromal tumours (8.3%) and metastatic tumours (2.0%). Ultrasound guided FNAC done in cases of ovarian tumours showed an accuracy of 100% for malignant lesions and 100% for benign and borderline lesions when compared with histopathological diagnosis. Of the non neoplastic lesions follicular cysts and corpus leuteal cysts were commonest (80.2%). Tuberculosis constituted (2.9%) cases and was the major cause of clinical diagnostic pitfalls for cases in which a clinical diagnosis of ovarian neoplasm was made.
