Ovarian epithelial tumors are thought to derive from the surface epithelium of the ovary, which differentiates after invagination of the coelomic mesothelium over the gonadal ridges during early embryonic development. On the putative mullerian potential of this epithelium, endometriosis, including ovarian endometriosis, can be explained by a metaplastic process from the peritoneum. In the present study, we assessed specific changes in the architecture and in the cytological characteristics of… CONTINUE READING
