Atlas of Tumor Pathology Fascicle 23. Ovarian cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in females. In addition to its common epithelial forms, a wide variety of rare malignant tumours develop in the ovary, including hormone-secreting neoplasms and germ-cell tumours, which can differentiate in countless directions.
This latest fascicle reviews current knowledge of the pathology of ovarian and adnexal tumours and tumour-like disorders, with special regard to their differential diagnosis. Immunohistochemistry is discussed where appropriate, but the emphasis is on reaching a diagnosis on the basis of routine stains.
