1) To provide an educational review of common and uncommon pediatric ovarian tumors 2) To review the radiologic findings of ovarian tumors and correlate with its clinical and pathologic features


The presentation will cover CT, MR, and US findings of common and rare pediatric ovarian masses, with pathologic correlation.; Cases will include germ cell tumors (teratomas/dysgerminoma/yolk sac tumor/embryonal carcinoma/mixed germ cell tumor), sex-cord stromal tumors (thecoma-fibroma/Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor/sclerosing stromal tumor/juvenile granulosa cell tumor), gonadoblastoma, rare soft tissue tumors (Ewing’s sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor), malignant lymphoma, and leukemia.; Clinical associations, correlative pathology specimens and microscopic pathology will also be shown.


The most common pediatric ovarian neoplasms are germ cell tumors, followed by epithelial tumors and stromal tumors. Upon completion of the presentation, the radiologist should have an understanding of the different imaging features, clinical associations, and current opinions on imaging for various common, unusual, and rare ovarian masses affecting the children and adolescents population. The viewer should also be able to recognize such masses and to provide a differential diagnosis.
