Miscellaneous:

Mesothelial hyperplasia (left to right): #1-present between outer surface of an ovarian serous borderline tumor (left) and vascular adhesion (right); #2-mesothelial cells have abundant pale eosinophilic cytoplasm, small focus of calcification is evident; #3-numerous small tubular structures and cords of mesothelial cells are growing in a parallel array

Artifact: granulosa cells in blood vessel lumina

Infarcted appendix epiploica attached to ovarian surface, with focal calcification



Pregnancy-related changes:

Granulosa cell proliferation: an atretic follicle is filled with a proliferation of granulosa cells growing in a pattern resembling a microfollicular granulosa cell tumor (left); the granulosa cell layer of a cystic atretic follicle is replaced by solid tubules resembling a Sertoli cell tumor-the tubules are surrounded by a layer of theca lutein cells (right)

Ectopic decidua: one cell is vacuolated, somewhat resembling a signet- ring cell (left); large nodules were present on the ovarian and peritoneal surfaces, the cells have abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm and central, pale, round nuclei (right)



Miscellaneous:

Post-menopausal: atrophic ovary (left); cortical granuloma (right)

Hilus cell hyperplasia: large nodular masses of hilus cells are present, one surrounding the rete ovarii (left); post-menopausal woman whose hilus cells have bizarre shapes and abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm, some nuclei are enlarged and hyperchromatic (right)

Nodular hilar cell proliferation
