Sclerosing stromal tumors of the ovary are distinct, but rare benign neoplasms. These tumors appear solid and are very vascular giving the impression of malignant tumors. They occur mostly in young women. Morphologically they have distinct characteris­tics which differentiate them from other stromal tumors.
