Ovarian sex cord stromal tumors are uncommon. They present mostly in women who are younger than those presenting with epithelial tumors and in general follow a less agressive course than most ovarian carcinomas. However, many sex cord stromal tumors may mimic high grade adenocarcinomas. Therefore, distinction between the two is important. This lecture will review morphologic and immunohistochemical markers that are helpful in this distinction. Emphasis will be placed on newer markers and a practical approach to their use.
