It looks like a case of MUCINOUS AND GRANULOSA CELL OVARIAN TUMOR because 1.S.Inhibin levels are significantly raised and inhibin levels are more reliable than CA 125 levels in these OVARIAN tumors 2.CA - 125 is raised 3.CT scan showing a a big pelvic mass in a female goes in favour of OVARIAN mass Yes D/D is Sarcoma Lymphoma . A CT guided F.N.A.C or biopsy will be diagnostic Treatment depends upon the biopsy report. Surgical excision remains the mainstay of treatment

To finalize the diagnosis FNAC to be done, although looks to be lymphoma

Thanks Dr. Kute Ankush, Dr. Dinesh Gupta


Tnx Dr Vipin Bihari Jain sir

Inhibin b elevated in granulosa cell tumors or epithelial ovarian tumors. CT guided biopsy will reveal diagnosis and immunohistochemistry. Treatment options r surgery fby chemotherapy or interval chemotherapy.

Likely to be Granulosa cell tumour or mucous adenoma in which CA125 and Inhibin B are elevated . CT guided biopsy PETCT to assess spread. Treatment depending on findings

Looks like lymphoma

Do PET scan

Chanderprabha Vati - 2 tablets, twice daily with plain water after meals. Pradrantak Churna - 1 teaspoonful, twice daily with water after meals. Kanchnaar Guggul - 2 tablets, twice daily with plain water after meals. Punarnava Mandur - 2 tablets, twice daily with plain water after meals.

Considering her age , CT scan reports looks like MALIGNANT & best management is Staging laparotomy AND to decide further extensive dissection at same time,then HPR , followed by chemotherapy/Radiotherapy as per operative findings, HPR.

High inhibin level indicate ovarian germ cell tumor

Do CECT Abdopelvis and FNAC. Explain pt about the condition
