Ovarian teratoma

  1. 1. Uma Chidiebere John
  2. 2. Introduction Types Manifestations Cause Diagnosis Retroconversion Complications Treatment
  3. 3. Terato - Greek : monster, oma : swelling) Teratomas - embryonic neoplasm from totipotent stem cells. Component derived from all 3 germ layers. Tissues foreign to the location found.
  4. 4. Mature, 1. cystic 2. solid malignant transformation in < 2% Immature Monodermal, highly specialized
  5. 5. Most common germ cell neoplasm Well-differentiated derivations from at least two of the three germ cell layers Younger age group (mean patient age, 30 years) Asymptomatic Grow slowly Bilateral in about 10% of cases
  6. 6. Unilocular in 88% of cases Filled with sebaceous material, Squamous epithelium lines the wall of the cyst, Hyalinized ovarian stroma covers the external surface Hair follicles, skin glands, muscle, and other tissues lie within the wall.
  7. 7. Gross appearance of a mature dermoid cyst
  8. 8. Mesodermal tissue (fat, bone, cartilage, muscle) – 90% Endodermal tissue (gastrointestinal and bronchial epithelium, thyroid tissue) – 80% Adipose tissue 67-75% Teeth – 31%
  9. 9. Rokitansky nodule Echogenic area usually demonstrating sound attenuation owing to sebaceous material and hair within the cyst cavity Multiple thin, echogenic bands caused by hair in the cyst cavity
  10. 10. A raised protuberance projecting into the cyst cavity. Most of the hair typically arises from this protuberance. When bone or teeth are present, they tend to be located within this nodule
  11. 11. Has no identifiable immature components Are benign, corresponding to grade 0 immature teratomas. Radiologically indistinguishable from immature teratomas and occur in a similar age group (20 years).  Fat may be visible at MR imaging or CT
  12. 12. Mature solid teratoma
  13. 13. Demonstrate clinically malignant behavior Much less common (1% of ovarian teratomas) Affect a younger age group (mean patient age, 20 years) Histologically distinguished by the presence of immature or embryonic tissues Usually perforated
  14. 14. Photograph of an immature teratoma
  15. 15. At initial manifestation, immature teratomas are typically larger (14–25 cm) than mature cystic teratomas (average, 7 cm) May be solid or have a prominent solid component with cystic elements. Usually filled with serous or mucinous fluid or may be filled with fatty sebaceous material.
  16. 16. Ipsilateral typical mature cystic teratomas are present in 26% of cases of immature teratoma, and an immature teratoma will be seen in the contralateral ovary in 10%
  17. 17. Tumors are heterogeneous, partially solid lesions Scattered calcifications Small foci of fat At CT and MR imaging, irregular solid component containing coarse calcifications and small foci of fat is seen. Hemorrhage is often present.
  18. 18. Gross appearance of immature teratoma
  19. 19. This is a situation where immature teratomas undergo tissue maturation and take on an appearance more typical of mature cystic teratomas. CT features of maturation include i. increased density of mass lesions, ii. the onset of internal calcification, with fatty areas and cystic change.
  20. 20. Composed predominantly or solely of one tissue type. There are three main types of ovarian monodermal tumors: i. struma ovarii, ii. ovarian carcinoid tumors, and iii. tumors with neural differentiation.
  21. 21. Composed predominantly or solely of mature thyroid tissue Such thyroid tissue can occur as a minor component of mature cystic teratomas. Accounts for approximately 3% of all mature teratomas. In rare cases, thyrotoxicosis has been seen as a complication of struma ovarii
  22. 22. Consists of amber-colored thyroid tissue, hemorrhage, necrosis, and fibrosis. Malignancy is uncommon The US features: a heterogeneous, predominantly solid mass with multiple cystic and solid areas MR imaging findings: The cystic spaces demonstrate both high and low signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted images No fat is evident in these lesions.
  23. 23. Uncommon. May be insular (islet tumors), trabecular, or mucinous. Frequently associated with a mature cystic teratoma or mucinous tumor At gross pathologic examination, ovarian carcinoid tumors are solid
  24. 24. Usually occur in postmenopausal women. Most of these tumors have a relatively benign clinical course, with metastases being uncommon. Secretory granules are seen within the tumor cells, Immunocytochemical analysis demonstrates serotonin and hormonal peptides. Carcinoid syndrome is uncommon.
  25. 25. Monodermal teratomas with neuroectodermal differentiation can form benign, or primitive neuroectodermal tumors May be associated with glia formation.
  26. 26. Abdominal pain; depending on the size Dyspareunia Compression
  27. 27. Serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) Beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) Cancer antigen 125 (CA125), CA19-9, and Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)
  28. 28. US Rokitansky nodule Echogenic area CT Fat attenuation, with/without calcification in the wall MRI Sebaceous component has a very high signal for T1 Fat attenuation, T2
  29. 29. Ultrasound image of a mature dermoid cyst
  30. 30. Axial unenhanced CT scan shows intratumoral fat (small arrows) and calcifications (large arrow)
  31. 31. Ovarian torsion: ~3-16% of ovarian teratomas, Rupture: ~1-4%; peritonitis Malignant transformation: ~1-2%, usually into squamous cell carcinoma (adults) or rarely into endodermal sinus tumors (pediatrics) Superimposed infection: 1%
  32. 32. Axial contrast-enhanced CT scans show several free- floating areas of fat attenuation from a perforated dermoid cyst
  33. 33. Photograph of squamous cell carcinoma malignant transformation within a mature cystic teratoma
  34. 34. Stage 1 - means the cancer is only in the ovary (or both ovaries) Stage 2 - means the cancer has spread into the fallopian tube, womb, or elsewhere in the area circled by your hip bones (your pelvis) Stage 3 - means the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes or to the tissues lining the abdomen (called the peritoneum) Stage 4 - means the cancer has spread to another body organ some distance away, for example the lungs
  35. 35. 3D-reconstructed CT showing a calcification
  36. 36. Blood clot Hemorrhagic cyst Echogenic bowel Perforated appendix with appendicolith Pedunculated lipoleiomyoma of the uterus Ovarian serous or mucinous cystadenoma/cystadenocarcinoma
  37. 37. Goals Removal, where possible Relief of symptoms Depends on diagnosis Surgical excision. Chemotherapy Follow-up
  38. 38. Risk of recurrence related to degree of maturity. <10% in completely resected mature Teratoma. 33% immature Teratoma. Completeness of resection.

  • On an axial contrast material–enhanced CT scan, the cyst cavity demonstrates fat attenuation (F). A round Rokitansky nodule is seen (arrow) and has a feathery appearance at the fatty interface where the hair arises from it (arrowhead). (c) Photograph of the bisected tumor shows the two components of the fat attenuation seen in b: the Rokitansky nodule (thick arrow), which has the yellowish appearance of adipose tissue, and sebaceous components (F). Teeth are seen in the center of the Rokitansky nodule and account for the calcification seen in b. The bulk of the cyst cavity is filled with hair (arrowheads). Note how the cyst wall is folded back (thin arrow).
