54. Dysgerminoma

A large, whitish-greyish tumor of the ovary is visible. The tumor forms lobules. The cut surface is homogenous.

On the back of the preparation a part of the fallopian tube is visible.

Risk factors:

  • Nothing special

It’s not really easy (or even possible) to see that this used to be an ovary.
