Ovarian hemangiomas are rare. Here, the authors report an asymptomatic ovarian hemangioma in a postmenopausal patient. Ultrasound revealed a left ovarian cyst measuring 2.06×1.74×2.11 cm in a 57-year-old postmenopausal female. On preoperative examination, estrogen and carbohydrate antigen 72-4 (CA72-4) were 131 pmol/L and 7.88 U/mL, respectively. The results of intraoperative frozen section examination and final histopathology were indicative of an ovarian hemangioma. This rare case of asymptomatic ovarian hemangioma with elevated estrogen might demonstrate a possible relationship between estrogen levels and ovarian hemangioma.
