OBJECTIVES

  1. Gross Anatomy and Histology

After completing this section you will be able to:

  • List the various parts and structures that form the ovary
  • describe the gross anatomy and histology of the ovary
  • describe the physiologic changes that occur in the ovary with each menstrual cycle
  1. Nonneoplastic Lesions

After completing this section you will be able to:

  • list the common nonneoplastic lesions of the ovary
  • understand and describe clinical features and relevant associations
  • predict clinical outcome, suggest treatment and predict response to treatment
  1. Neoplasms

After completing this section you will know:

  • the main groups of ovarian neoplasms
  • which group is most common
  • which group accounts for the most deaths
  • which group presents with hormonal activity and which produces tumor markers
  • which group has analogous testicular tumors
  1. Epithelial Tumors

    After completing this section you will:

    • know the common subtypes and which are most often bilateral
    • match the various subtypes with epithelium in other parts of the female genital tract
    • understand the concept of borderline tumors and how to distinguish them from carcinomas
    • be able to describe clinical features including relevant associations
    • be able to suggest possible clinical outcomes and response to treatment
  1. Germ Cell Tumors

    After completing this section you will:

    • understand how germ cell tumors originate
    • know the commonest type
    • be able to describe clinical features including relevant associations
    • know which tumor produces which marker
    • predict possible clinical outcomes and response to treatment
  1. Sex Cord-Stromal Tumors

    After completing this section you will:

    • understand the origins of these tumors
    • know which are feminizing, virilizing or both
    • describe clinical features and relevant associations
    • predict possible clinical outcomes/behavior and response to treatment
  1. Miscellaneous Ovarian Tumors

    After completing this section you will know:

    • The various mixed epithelial-mesenchymal tumors, their components and clinical behavior
    • the commonest primary site of metastasis to the ovary
    • what Krukenberg tumor is and the common primary sites from which it may arise
