Studies on human ovarian tumours
Fathalla, Mahmoud Fahmy
These studies on ovarian tumours were largely based on the collection of gynaecological pathology material in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of the University of Edinburgh. All ovarian tumour cases examined during a period of 10 years, 1954-1963 were reviewed. These amounted to a total of 1734 cases. For the purpose of some studies, the review was extended beyond the 10 year period. The studies included in this thesis fall into three parts. In part I, biostatistical and general aspects of the ovarian tumour series are presented. Part II deals with histopathological studies. In part III, the application of cytogenetic techniques to the study of some problems of ovarian tumours is presented and discussed.
