Abstract
Fibrothecomas are mesenchymal tumors deriving from the ovarian stromal and consisting of theca-like elements and fibrous tissue. They are common, but their malignant counterpart is extraordinarily rare. Classical malignant fibrothecomas are said to show four or more mitotic figures per 10 high power fields. We have experienced a rare case of malignant ovarian fibrothecoma in a 72-year-old postmenopausal woman. We report a case with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Thecoma, Fibroma, Malignant neoplasms, Ovary, Mitotic Index
