Abstract

Sclerosing stromal tumor (SST) of the ovary is an uncommon benign ovarian neoplasm of sex cord stromal origin with distinct clinical and radiological features. We describe a cystic SST in a 35-year-old female who presented with right lower abdominal pain. Computerized tomography scan revealed a complex ovarian cyst. Right-sided Salpingo-oophorectomy was done with an intraoperative frozen section, which ruled out malignancy. Histopathology showed features consistent with SST ovary. In this report, we discuss the differential diagnosis and role of histopathology in confirming the benign nature of the neoplasm, so a conservative surgery can be performed.
