Abstract :

Background: Intraoperative cytological assessment is required for quick decision for the management of ovarian neoplasms while undergoing surgical intervention. Though cytology has limitations it forms an important adjuvant in intraoperative consultation. Purpose: To study and assess role of intraoperative scrape cytology and its comparison with frozen section diagnosis in ovarian tumors. Materials & Methods: The study comprised of 50 cases of ovarian tumors which came for intraoperative consultations. The cases were divided into two groups. One group constitutes frozen section slides and scrapes cytology slides. Another group constitutes only scrape cytology slides. These sets of slides were reviewed by two different pathologists in background of clinical information. The results of both these groups were compared by pathologists in accurately categorizing the ovarian tumors and then with the final paraffin block section. Result: The cases analyzed with cytology only were showing diagnostic accuracy comparable with frozen section and final histopathology diagnosis. Detailed results will be discussed at the time of conference. Conclusion: Intraoperative cytology is a good adjunct to histopathology in study of ovarian neoplasms where facility of frozen section is not available for appropriate surgical management. As the technique is simple, inexpensive and shows excellent preservation of cellular details the method is gaining importance nowadays.
