Ovary - Mesonephric Duct Remnant
Mesonephric duct remnants in the ovary are characterized by small clusters of tubules within periovarian tissue ( Figure 1 and Figure 2 ). The tubules are lined by cuboidal to tall columnar epithelium and have an appearance reminiscent of epididymal tubules. These tubules are recognized as being remnants of mesonephric ducts.
Ovary - Mesonephric duct remnant should always be diagnosed but need not be graded.
