All the patients with symptoms suggestive of adnexal mass were taken for the study and among these patients with ovarian pathology were subsequently included in the study. In all about 60 patients suggestive of adnexal mass with ovarian pathology were included for this study.
Result: Beside the ovarian mass the incidence of other adnexal masses were ectopic pregnancy (40%), tubercular mass (13.33%), hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst (13.33%) and remaining cervical leiomyoma, broad ligament cyst, PID, appendicular lump and malignant fibrous histiocytoma constituting 6.67% each.
Conclusion: The overall incidence of ovarian tumour among the adnexal masses was 4.28%, but the incidence of histologically proven ovarian tumour was 3.81%. The incidence of benign tumour was 80%. The incidence of malignant tumour was 20%. Among the remaining adnexal masses (15), the percentage of ectopic pregnancy was 40%, tubercular mass (13.33%), hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst (13.33%) and rest of the masses constituted 6.67% each. The incidence of ovarian tumour associated with pregnancy was 6.67%.
