An extremely rare case of a postmenopausal patient with an ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour and a coexistent vaginal angiomyx­oma is reported. A 71-year-old patient was admitted complaining of abdominal distension. A thorough diagnostic evaluation revealed a large tumour of the right ovary, and an oval-shaped greyish-white polypoid vaginal lesion. Total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo­oophorectomy and lymph node sampling was performed, followed by excision of the vaginal lesion. Histological examination showed a Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour of the right ovary, and a vaginal angiomyxoma. Twenty-six months after the operation the patient is well with no signs of recurrence. To the best of our knowledge, no case of coexistence of an ovarian Sertoli-Leydig cell tumour with a myxoma has been previously reported.
