Abstract

The ovarian neoplasms are a diverse group that re flect the various histologic elements found in the organ. The tumors can be broadly categorized into three groups having an epithelial cell, germ cell, and stromal cell origin. Some ovarian neoplasms contain a mixture of different cell elements, are poorly differentiated, and are dif ficult to categorize into the three groups. The ovary is a common site of metastases from various malignant tumors, including carcinoma of the stomach and carcinoma of the colon. The overlap of imaging appearances between the metastatic ovarian tumors and primary ovarian tumors is substantial, and a con fident distinction between the two on the basis of imaging findings is very dif ficult. Primary fallopian tube carcinoma is an unusual gynecologic malignancy that is rarely diagnosed correctly before surgery due to dif ficulty in assessing the imaging findings. This chapter describes imaging features of various kinds of metastatic ovarian tumors, rare ovarian tumors that are dif ficult to categorize into the usual categories, and primary tumors of fallopian tubes and broad ligaments.
