AbstractA retrospective study of 316 ovarian neoplasms which had frozen section evalutation between January 1, 1990 to December 31, 1995 was conducted to determine the accuracy of frozen section diagnosis of ovarian neoplasms. The frozen section results were compared with final diagnoses from paraffin sections. The frozen section diagnosis was accurate in 95.2% of all cases and inaccurate in 4.8%. The positive predictive value of a positive (or malignant) frozen section was 100%, the negative predictive value of a negative (or benign) frozen section was 98.2%. The sensitivity for malignant tumors was 87%. For tumors of borderline malignancy, the sensitivity and specificity were 60% and 98.6% respectively. Of the false negative frozen section diagnoses, 73% (8 cases) occurred in tumors of borderline malignancy. We concluded that with the exception of the sensitivity for the diagnosis of tumors of borderline malignancy, the sensitivity and specificity of frozen section diagnosis for benign and overtly malignant ovarian neoplasms are high.
