Objective: To observe the ultrasonic features of the ovary adenofibroma (OAF) and cystadenofibroma (OCAF). Methods: Ultrasonic features of 33 patients with OAF or OCAF confirmed pathologically were retrospectively analyzed. Results: Twenty-five patients had lesions in the ovary or near the ovary, including 4 cases of solid mass, 11 of cystic mass and 10 of mixed cystic-solid mass. All OAF and OCAF were misdiagnosed with ultrasound. CDFI could hardly detect blood flow signal in the papillary or solid areas of the lesions. Conclusion: Ultrasonogram of OAF and OCAF have certain characteristics. Combined with CDFI, ultrasound may be helpful to assess the nature of the tumor, while final diagnosis still depends on pathology.
