Seyhan Özakkoyunlu Hasçiçek, Ahu Gülçin Sarı, Fevziye Kabukcuoğlu

Objective: Sclerosing stromal tumor of the ovary (SST) is a rare neoplasm of the sex cord stromal category. We present a case of a unilateral SST of the ovary in a 54 -year- old woman with abdominal swelling and describe the clinical and histological findings with reference to other reported cases.

Case: Histopathologically, the lesion was characterized by a pseudolobular pattern of the edematous stroma containing focal sclerosis areas, a heterogeneous cell population and marked vascularization.

Conclusion: Ovary sclerosing stromal tumor is most commonly seen in the 2nd and 3rd decades, but it should be kept in mind that it may also be seen in postmenopausal patients.

Keywords: Benign, ovary, sclerosing stromal tumor
