  • Figure 1
    Pelvic ultrasonography

    The transabdominal sonogram of the left ovary revealing a central region of calcification (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Pelvic ultrasonography;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Pelvic MRI
     

    The axial T1-weighted image showing a solid mass in the left ovary with a higher signal intensity than the ovarian stroma (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Pelvic MRI;

    The axial T2-weighted image showing that the lesion has a low signal intensity (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Pelvic MRI;

    After contrast-enhancement with Gd-DTPA, the fat-saturated axial T1-weighted image, showing an enhancement of the ovarian stroma and a lower intensity of the lesion. A low signal intensity mass is well-delineated...

  • Figure 3
    Tumourectomy specimen

    A well-circumscribed tumour,measuring 20 mm along the longest axis, brown in colour.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Tumorectomy specimen;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Microscopy findings

    Large tumour cells with granular and eosinophilic cytoplasm and uniform nuclei (H&E).
