Ovarian thecoma-fibroma groups (OTFG) are uncommon sex cord-stromal neoplasms. Most of them are benign, and often found in postmenopausal patients. Thecomas are less common than granulosa cell tumors, but they have similar appearances. They are solid fibromatous lesions that show varying degrees of yellow or orange coloration. According to current bibliography, cases of ovarian fibromas with further ossification, are extremely rare entities. Objective of our study, consists of presentation of such rare case, properly diagnosed and treated followed by depiction of its pathogenic mechanisms.
