Ovarian Tumors: Tumors and Tumor-Like Conditions of the Ovaries, Fallopian Tubes and Ligaments of the Uterus

This is an informative and useful book that, in addition to discussing ovarian tumors, has several chapters on tumors of the fallopian tubes and the accessory ligaments of the uterus. Concepts new to some American surgeons and pathologists include "systemic carcinoma" and the role of enzymatically active cells of ovarian stroma in relation to neoplasms. The introduction to incidence, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis is effective and concise. The principal failing of the book here is the absence of a chapter on development of the ovary.

The detailed and diverse nature of the ovary leads easily to confusion and disagreement. In several instances this may be due to lack of attention to recent ultrastructural work. For example, adenomatoid tumors now seem to be mesotheliomas with a special matrix pattern, and granular cell myoblastoma is a tumor of Schwann cells of neural crest origin and is mistakenly identified here with neurilemmoma.
