Definition: Ovarian fibroma is a common ovarian sex cord-stromal tumor. Ovarian fibroma has dense benign spindle cells. It is associated with Meigs syndrome (ovarian fibroma, ascites, right pleural effusion), and Gorlin syndrome (basal cell nevus syndrome - basal cell carcinomas, odontogenic keratocyst, PTCH gene, autosomal dominant).
