Arrhenoblastoma of the ovary is a relatively rare tumor. Pick1 first described a well differentiated tumor of tubular structure found in the ovary and called it adenoma testiculare. This tumor was hormonally inactive. Meyer2 studied these tumors extensively and gave them their name, using the Greek word for male (arrhenos) as a prefix. In an extensive study published in 1947 Iverson3 reviewed 94 cases. She found the average age at onset in her review to be 32 years. It has not been known to occur in a patient younger than 16, and cases beyond the menopause are infrequent.
