Immunohistochemistry of Ovarian Tumors

  • Robert E. Scully
Part of the Developments in Oncology book series (DION, volume 34)


Almost all ovarian tumors can be diagnosed on routine examination of adequate numbers of sections stained with hematoxylin and eosin, with the occasional addition of mucin, glycogen, argyrophil or reticulum stains (1). Although electron microscopic studies have expanded our knowledge of the morphologic features of ovarian tumors, they have rarely yielded information of diagnostic significance. Immunohistochemistry has already contributed to our understanding of the biology of ovarian tumors, but up to the present time has likewise been of little diagnostic aid. It is probable, however, that, with the continuing identification of new and more specific antibodies and experience with larger numbers of cases, this approach will have on increasingly important role in the diagnosis of unusual ovarian tumors.
