Sclerosing stromal tumour of the ovary is rare. Patients present with menstrual irregularities, pelvic pain, abdominal distension, and presence of a large pelvic mass during their twenties or thirties. We report a rare case of an ovarian sclerosing stromal tumour with an atypical presentation, in that it gave rise to recurrent postmenopausal bleeding.
Key words: Ovarian neoplasms; Sclerosis
