Three cases of sclerosing stromal tumor of the ovary are presented. All three patients were nulliparous young wemen of 23~25 years of age, presenting with menstrual irregularity for 6 months to 4 years. Grossly the tumors ranged in size from 8 to 22cm in greatest diameter, showing gray white to yellow solid or predominantly cystic tissue with serous fluid. The common microscopic finding was that of cellular areas admixed with densel fibrous and/or edematous tissue, presenting pseudolobular appearance. Two types of tumor cells were rounded cells with clear vacuolated cytoplasm and less numerous spindle shaped cells. Postoperative course was uneventful and menstrual irregularity disappeared postoperatively. In case 2, the patient got pregnant after 1 year and 4 months. This clinical course suggests that sclerosing stromal tumor of the ovary may be endocrinologically active.
