Surface epithelial tumours were more common followed by Germ cell tumours. Mean age of diagnosis was 40.43 years. Abdominal mass was the most common presenting symptom. Right sided tumours were more common than the left. CONCLUSION Even though immunohistochemical and chromosomal studies have made diagnosis and differentiation of tumours easier, in developing countries like India, cost effective histomorphologic studies still form the backbone of diagnosis of these tumours.
