Abstract

In the present study 122 ovarian teratomas, reported from the department of pathology, Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, were predominantly (76%) seen in the age group below 40 years and the peak incidence was in the third decade (39%). Menstrual disturbances, pain abdomen, pregnancy and abdominal distension were the presenting symptoms. Histologically 113 (92.6%) were benign cystic teratomas showing mainly ectodermal tissue derivatives. Struma ovarii (4 cases) revealed colloid, both macro-and microscopically. Immature teratomas (2 cases) were solid and showed embroyonal tissue elements. Teratomas wit malignant transformations (3 cases) were grossly nodular and were squamous cell carcinomas.
