Gynecological morbidity is defined as any condition, disease, or dysfunction of thereproductive system which is not related to pregnancy, abortion, or childbirth. A significant numberof ovarian lesions have been known to cause Gynecological morbidity among most females. With theincreased use of screening modalities, ovarian lesions have increasingly been encountered forpathological analysis. It is important to evaluate the pattern of clinical presentation, corroboratingwith histological

Material andMethods: This retrospective study was conducted on 350 ovarian samples received for five years inthe Department of Pathology, of our tertiary teaching hospital. Clinicopathological data wereretrieved from the hospital records. The histomorphological analysis was reviewed and neoplasticand non-neoplastic ovarian lesions were segregated according to the World Health Organizationclassification. Results: Based on histology, the predominant ovarian lesions diagnosed were non-neoplastic conditions including simple and follicular cyst, corpus luteal cyst, corpus hemorrhagiccyst, and cystic follicles constituting 40.6% on the right side and 34% on the left side. Malignancywas predominant on the right side (1.7%) while the same was 0.6% on the left side. Conclusion:The present study has identified that non-neoplastic lesions are more common in ovaries thanneoplastic lesions and it has identified that serous cystadenomas are the most common ovarianneoplastic lesions.
