Case Report

Cystic Sclerosing Stromal Tumor of the Ovary: A Case Report and Review of Literature

Geetha Vasudevan, Arijit Bishnu.

Sclerosing stromal tumour 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. CT-scan revealed a complex ovarian cyst. Right sided Salpingo-oophorectomy was done with intra-operative 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.

Key words: abdominal pain, cellular, cystic, leutinization, sclerosing stromal tumor
