Immature ovarian teratoma (IOT) is a rare and aggressive malignant neoplasm characterized by immature neural tissue. The cytomorphologic features have only rarely been described. We herein describe an additional case and review the literature regarding this entity. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case with imprint cytology. A 35‐year‐old woman presented with a pelvic mass which was resected and sent for frozen section evaluation. Imprint smears and frozen section of the… 

Usefulness of Intraoperative Imprint Cytology in Ovarian Germ Cell Tumors

It is demonstrated that intraoperative assessment based on imprint cytology for immature teratoma has a relatively lower sensitivity, but an acceptable sensitivity for other germ cell tumors.

Metastatic of mature component in a treated case of immature teratoma diagnosed on fine‐needle aspiration cytology of the liver

A case of immature teratoma that presented with isolated liver metastasis and was confirmed in FNAC from the liver as metastasis of mature elements, which is an uncommon tumor comprising of <1% of teratomas of ovary.

Intraoperative Cytology of Ovarian Neoplasms with an Attempt to Grade Epithelial Tumors

IOC gives comparable results to frozen section and can be used for intraoperative assessment of ovarian tumors and may become an important step in intraoperative decision-making for better management and outcome of the patient.

Germ cell tumors of the gonads: a selective review emphasizing problems in differential diagnosis, newly appreciated, and controversial issues

As expected, teratomas in boys are clinically benign, whereas in postpubertal males they are malignant, independent of their degree of immaturity, and the judicious use of tailored panels of immunohistochemical stains resolve these dilemmas in virtually all instances.

The size and stage of teratomas were related to survival, but it was the grade of the primary tumor that best determined the likelihood of extraovarian spread, and it was not the size or stage of the metastases that related best to the subsequent course.
