Steroid cell tumours (SCTs) account for less than 0.1% of all ovarian tumours. Three major categories ofSCTs include (1) stromal luteoma, (2) steroid cell tumour not otherwise specified and (3) Leydig cell tumours that do not have another component. Stromal luteomas constitute 20% of SCTs. They usually occur in postmenopausal women and about 60% present with estrogenic manifestations. We report a case of stromal luteoma in an elderly lady who presented with postmenopausal bleeding secondary to endometrial hyperplasia. An interesting finding in our case was the presence of many eosinophilic hyaline globules scattered throughout the tumour, the significance of which remains to be determined.
