Mucinous carcinomas are reported to comprise 6-25% of ovarian carcinomas (mean 12%), but recent refinements in the interpretation of histologic features of noninvasive and metastatic mucinous carcinomas suggest that this may be an overestimate. Mucinous carcinomas in the ovaries are commonly metastatic, but the proportion of primary versus metastatic mucinous carcinomas in unselected patients is unknown. To evaluate the histologic-type distribution of ovarian surface epithelial carcinomas, a… CONTINUE READING
