Ovarian cancer in the pediatric population

Anne C. Fischer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Ovarian pediatric neoplasms are uncommon in children and the most common histopathologic ovarian malignancy is a germ cell tumor. The biology and pathology for the majority of pediatric ovarian tumors differ from that of adult ovarian neoplasms, and thus staging is different and localized to the actual extent of the tumor and its direct involvement in structures as opposed to a more extirpative approach taken in adults to stage extensively.
