Abstract

Ovarian fibroma represents the commonest benign tumor of the ovarian stroma. The cellular fibroma is a tumor of uncertain malignant potential that may recur or be associated with peritoneal implants. Usually these are solid tumors, sometimes with small areas of cystic degeneration. The authors present a case of a 70-year-old female patient with an enormous cellular ovarian fibroma located at the region of the right adnexa. The aim of this study consists of the presentation, dissection, and proper management of this rare histologic subtype of ovarian tumor.
