Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To correlate the cytologic diagnoses of peritoneal washings (PWs) with histologic findings of ovarian tumors of low malignant potential (LMP). METHODS: PW cytology from 90 patients with histologically confirmed ovarian tumors of LMP were reviewed and correlated with histologic findings. RESULTS: In 90 LMP tumor patients who underwent PW, cytologic diagnoses were reported as positive in 30 (33%) cases, atypical in 5 (6%) cases and negative in 55 (61%) cases. On review of the five atypical cases, three were reclassified as negative and two as positive. Peritoneal washings were positive in 20 (33%) of 60 patients with serous LMP tumors, 12 (44%) of 27 patients with mucinous LMP tumors and none of 3 patients with mixed LMP tumors. The presence of positive cytology was highly indicative of surface ovarian involvement or peritoneal implants in completely staged or selectively biopsied patients (P
