MetadataShow full item record
A total of 144 primary neoplasmas of the ovary were recorded in a five year period in the Department of Pathology (formerly Public Health Laboratory),Lusaka.Benign neoplasms (65%) were commoner than malignant tumours (35%). The benign cystic teratoma (37.5%) was the commonest neoplasm. Tumours of special morphology and hormone-producing tumours were rare.Our findings are compared with a similar study from Uganda (james et al.,1973) and with studies from other parts of the world.
