Background: Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancers of the female reproductive system. The present study was conducted to assess lesions of ovary using CT scan. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted 68 females presented to department. Patients were subjected to complete haemogram, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and viral markers. All of them were subjected to contrast enhanced CT scan of abdomen and pelvis with 16-slice Siemens Multidetector CT scan machine. Results: Age group 0-10 years had 6, 20-30 had 24, 30-40 had 21, 40-50 had 4 and >50 years had 3 patients. The difference was significant (P< 0.01). Common lesions were hemorrhagic cyst in 16, mucinous cystadenoma in 12, tuboovarian abscess in 10, mature cystic teratoma in 8, simple cyst in 7, PCOD in 5, serous cystadenoma in 4 and endometrioma in 6. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Common findings were pain in 66, mass in 62, backache in 45, menstrual irregularity in 58, dysmenorrhea in 47, weight loss in 36 and infertility in 11. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Authors found that common lesion seen in females were hemorrhagic cyst, mucinous cystadenoma, tuboovarian abscess, mature cystic teratoma, simple cyst, PCOD, serous cystadenoma and endometrioma.
