Abstract

Thirty-four cases of ovarian fibroma are reported. The early symptoms were pelvic pain and abnormal uterine bleeding. All patients were in advanced menopause, mean age 63, except for one that was normally menstruatuating and was 23 years old. In all cases an ultrasound scan TV/TA and CA 125 tests were performed, and afterwards all patients were treated with either conservative or radical surgery. In addition to the above examinations, color Doppler tests on pelvic vessels were performed in 18 cases.
