A large benign ovarian cyst [Figure 1] was received in the lab. Grossly, it was a large, spherical, 12 cm in diameter, papery thin cyst filled with dark colored fluid. While further grossing; there was an area of the cyst with a 0.9 cm thick wall. Multiple sections of the same revealed an adult granulosa cell tumor.
In hindsight, if the material was divided or if the sections were not representative of the pathology, the diagnosis would have been missed. Therefore it is of the utmost importance to avoid cutting a resected specimen in the operation theatre and submit the entire specimen to a single laboratory. This will aid the correct diagnosis and also save resources as the biopsy material is very precious.
