The histopathological types of the tumors were also studied. Results: Abdominal pain was the commonest presenting symptom in 65% of the patients followed by abnormalities of vaginal bleeding. Most of the patients were managed by laparotomy and ovarian cystectomy. The commonest histopathological type was benign mature teratoma in 28% of the patients. Conclusion: Benign mature teratoma was the commonest histopathological type. Most of the patients had laparotomy; ovarian cystectomy and recurrences were few.
