Özet

Background: Ovarian masses are common in all pediatric age groups. Ovarian-sparing surgery is favored since most cases are benign or functional cysts. Detection of a few malignant cases prevents morbidity and mortality. Objective: to investigate which of the preoperative findings can help to distinguish the pathology of the ovarian lesions, affect the surgical decision and predict the possibility of ovarian preservation.
