Abstract
Sclerosing stromal tumor (SST) is an uncommon benign tumor of the ovary, representing 2~6% of all stromal ovarian tumors. It is a distinct benign neoplasm that differs from fibromas, thecomas, luteinized tumors and steroid cell tumors. It presents most often with non-specific symptoms and tumor markers usually remain normal. However massive ascites is a rare symptom. We report a case of sclerosing stromal tumor with massive ascites and elevated CA 125 with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Sclerosing stromal tumor, Ascites, CA 125
