Endometrioid Tumours of the Ovary

  • G. Gricouroff
Part of the UICC Monograph Series book series (UICC, volume 11)


The substance of my presentation can be contained in two sentences:
  1. I.

    The ovary can be the site of primary tumours with the histologic pattern of all the varieties of tumours found in endometrium of the uterine corpus.

  2. II.

    The frequency of endometriosis in the ovary makes it reasonable to suppose that these primary ovarian endometrioid tumours originate in reality in an endometriotic lesion.
