We can see a large multilocular (many smaller cysts inside the cyst) whitish cyst. There are no signs of solid tissue. The surface is smooth. It’s hard/impossible to find normal ovarian tissue.
Diagnosis: Mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary
- 30 – 40 year old females
Signs of solid tissue in this cyst would suggest malignancy.

Hei! According to topic 58 you write that it is the cystadenocarcinomas which are multi- loculated, while the cystadenomas are single simple cysts. Wouldnt that make this a cystadenocarcinoma?
I see your point, but there are probably more macroscopical features that distinguish adenocarcinoma from adenoma than the “loculisation”.
