Abstract
Ovarian leiomyoma is a very uncommon tumor that usually presents as an unilateral neoplasm typically associated with uterine leiomyoma in middle aged to postmenopuasal women. These probably originate from smooth muscle cells of the ovarian blood vessel or from the smooth muscle fibers near the attachment of the ovarian ligament. We report a case of ovarian leiomyoma, bilateral and massive in 17 year-old woman. We document the smooth muscle origin of the tumors with immunohistochemical studies that show appropriate staining with antibodies to actin, desmin, vimentin, S-100 protein.
Key Words: Ovarian leiomyoma
