Dr. Divya Patil | Dr. Sneha Chavarkar | Dr. Sudhamani
Abstract: Sclerosing stromal tumor of ovary is an extremely rare benign tumor of ovary of the sex cord stromal category, and most commonly occurs in young women. These tumors are found to be inactive hormonally and present with non-specific symptoms. As it often mimics a malignant neoplasm of ovary, pre-operative diagnosis of the tumor is challenging. Many young women undergo oophorectomy following which Sclerosing stromal tumor is diagnosed on histopathological examination. Hereby, we report one such rare case in a 17-year old female who presented with 6 months of menorrhagia and pelvic pain. She underwent unilateral oophorectomy along with salpingectomy for right ovarian mass. Histopathological examination showed features of Sclerosing Stromal tumor of ovary. It is important for the pathologists to be aware of the morphological features of this rare benign entity which mimics malignant neoplasm clinically and radiologically, to avoid unnecessary extensive surgery and mental distress to the patients.
