The classification of ovarian tumours is based on the presumed cell of origin either epithelial, germ cells or specialized gonadal stroma tumour. Among the malignant type of ovarian tumours, the epithelial type is the commonest comprising about 85% of cases. The ovarian epithelial tymours include serous, mucinous, clear cell, endometrioid and Brenner tumours. Case series We retrospectively traced MSCT of epithelial ovarian tumour performed in Hospital Tengku Ampuan Afzan, Kuantan, Pahang. A total of 48 cases were included from 2008 to 2010.
