Sclerosing stromal tumor (SST) is a rare benign sex cord-stromal ovarian tumor typically encountered in young females. These tumors are hormonally inactive and usually present with nonspecific symptoms. Histopathology is essential in the diagnosis of this uncommon tumor. We present a case of SST in a young female with a review of current literature. This patient presented with abdominal pain. She underwent right salpingo-oophorectomy. The histopathological examination and immunohistochemistry of the tumor was consistent with the diagnosis of SST.
