Abstract

Primary Site. The ovaries are a pair of solid, flattened ovoids 2–4 cm in diameter that are connected by a peritoneal fold to the broad ligament and by the infundibulopelvic ligament to the lateral wall of the pelvis (Figure 37.1). They are attached medially to the uterus by the utero-ovarian ligament.
