Fibrothecoma are mesenchymal tumors deriving from the ovarian stroma and consisting of theca-like elements and fibrous tissue. The reported incidence is between 0.4 and 8.0% of all ovarian tumors and this side variability can be attributed to the difficulty in differentiation fibrothecoma from ovarian fibroma or hyperplastic stroma nodules. A dermoid cyst is composed of well-differentiated derivatives of the three germ layers; ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. We have experienced a case of ovarian fibrothecoma with mature cystic teratoma of the ipsilateral ovary and ovarian fibroma of the contralateral ovary in a 33-year-old woman. We report a case with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Fibrothecoma, Mature cystic teratoma
