embryonic derivation of ovarian stromal cells
retroperitoneal mesenchyme
ovarian stroma cells include the following types...
granulosa (surround oocyte)
theca (surround granulosa)
embryonic derivation of ovarian germ cells
migrate thru yolk sac to retroperitoneal mesenchyme
mimic appendicitis
at risk for ovarian torsion
follicle cyst

includes BOTH granulosa & theca
